Start of construction

Due to snowfall in the area, the project will now start in mid-March rather than late February. This will likely affect the planned completion of work, but the new bridge is expected to be open by the Fourth of July.Utilities in the area have been flagged, and ITD is waiting to receive and review the contractor's plan for pedestrian access during construction.

Project advanced, public comments reviewed

This project was advanced to bring benefits of a new bridge sooner to drivers. Replacement will now begin sooner, reducing the impact to summertime pedestrians who need access to the sidewalk.

Fiber conduit will be installed during construction to help with any future connectivity work, and extra signs have been added along the detour to mark private drives and residences. Pedestrian access may be provided during construction depending upon the contractor’s resources.

Response to comments received at public meeting

After receiving comments at the meeting and online, the department has begun looking into: pedestrian access during construction, helping future connectivity in the area by installing fiber optics conduit and adjusting signage to reduce traffic on residential routes during construction.

Updates

The new structure is planned to reopen to traffic in mid-July but will not be open to vehicular traffic over the Fourth of July holiday.

Since March, the girders have been set and a pedestrian bridge has been installed. The deck is about to be poured.
