IDOT shares the comments that received about Rt 89 bridge

Posted by wlpo on May 11, 2012

You see a lot of cars taking the Route 89 bridge in Spring Valley, you’ll also find a lot of trucks hauling goods for local businesses.  Fears of what will happen when a new bridge is built have a lot of people asking IDOT to keep the crossing open.

Nearly 127 people were at an IDOT informational meeting regarding the Route 89 bridge in April. Even more people filled out comment cards saying they don’t want the bridge to be closed out of concern it would hurt local businesses.

IDOT says many others were worried about emergency services when and if the crossing is closed.  Most people say they want the old bridge to remain open while a new one is built.

IDOT says they’re working on environmental surveys and engineering studies.  They plan to have a follow up informational meeting this fall.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
