12th Street Viaduct reopens
Emergency repairs to address a failing support beam on the 12th Street Viaduct have been completed and the viaduct has reopened for regular use.
The seven-week closure allowed City crews to address a failing support beam.
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 late 2010.
Media inquiries should be directed to Sean Demory, communications specialist for the Capital Improvements Management Office, 816-513-0059.
