Construction will close lanes of Veteran’s Memorial Bridge this summer

Posted by wlpo on March 17, 2011

A major construction project is planned on the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge in Ottawa.

Bridge work begins June 9th and will be done by June 30th.  During construction, one lane each direction on the bridge will be closed to traffic.  Also the Route 23 and 71 intersection will be completely closed at the south end of the bridge.  The posted detour will be Route’s 178 and 6.

IDOT officials say inspections revealed 8% of the concrete deck is in need of patching.  Additional repairs will be made to expansion joints and the bridge approach pavement.  The bridge was opened in 1982.
