Ding, dong, the old bridge is gone
We won't have any major closures until we're ready to set bridge support beams. That work will require another weekend closure we will work hard to broadcast when the time comes. Overnight closures will be used to place bridge deck panels and pour concrete; those closures shouldn't mean weekend-long interruptions and we'll do our best to avoid the big stuff as much as we can.
A new intersection and one-way frontage roads
Sundt is really focusing on the intersection of Old Fred under the new overpasses, which needs to open before we can convert the frontage roads to one-way between Ralph Fair Road and Old Fredericksburg. The segment between Old Fred and Fair Oaks will convert to one-way once the new bridge over Fair Oaks is finished.
That work between the main lanes and frontage roads around the new overpass is intended to make sure the old embankments are cut to fit the new road just right. We're also finishing up some retaining walls - work that should wrap up before Thanksgiving.
The bottom line: we're still on target for a late Spring 2018 completion of entire project.
