Eighth Street Bridge Inspection

Beginning on Thursday, February 23, 2017, an extensive bridge inspection will be conducted on the Eighth Street bridge arch. Inspectors will be analyzing the bridge and making temporary markings on the structure to identify potential repairs in the future. They will be attached to the structure so that they can access all parts of the bridge.

Traffic on the bridge should not be affected, however, there may be momentary bike lane closures. Trail users are encouraged to consider alternate routes while the inspection is taking place.

This work is anticipated to be complete in approximately one week.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed while travelling near the construction area and may want to consider alternate routes.
