Route 178 Construction Nears Completion In Utica

Posted by wlpo on April 26, 2012

Yesterday was a big day for the Route 178 reconstruction in Utica.

Crews poured asphalt on the overpass over Interstate 80 yesterday.  Joe Spika with IDOT says this is last major part of the overpass reconstruction.  All that’s left now is some striping, painting, lighting work and seeding.

Also yesterday, Spika says they made a traffic switch opening up additional parts of 178 thru downtown Utica.  For the first time, you can drive across the new I & M bridge before being brought back on the existing stretch of 178 just south of the bridge.

The entire Route 178 project should be done by this fall.
