Traffic Shifts Continue For Bridge Work At Hwy 29, Nine Mile Road

August 16, 2017

The nightly traffic shifts on Nine Mile Road under the Highway overpass clear the way for the safe removal of the inside railings of the north and southbound bridges. Nighttime traffic continues to flow on the north side of the median while the contractor saw cuts the railing into segments for easy removal.

Eventually, the new center bridge deck will be joined to the existing southbound bridge.

After completion of the center bridge deck, all four lanes of traffic will shift onto the southbound and new center portion of the bridge. Then, the contractor will demolish and construct the northbound section of the new bridge.
