Lanes reopen on 12th Street viaduct for winter
Work crews have reopened the 12th Street viaduct to full use for the winter.
Crews opened one lane and reconfigured two additional lanes earlier this week to allow access to two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane. These lanes will remain open until early spring, at which point they will modify access in order to complete the remaining repairs on the superstructure.
The 12th Street Bridge is currently in the third and final phase of a construction project designed to refurbish the structure. Work on the upper deck, being managed by the City’s Capital Projects Office, is scheduled for completion in mid-2012.
Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this closure or the 12th Street Bridge construction project should be directed to Sean Demory, communications specialist for the Capital Projects Office, 816-513-0059.
