5th Street Bridge Maintenance & Overnight Lane Closures

April 18, 2018

There will be single-lane closures on the 5th Street bridge overnight on Thursday, April 26 till the morning of Friday, April 27, while contractors wash the bridge structure. Expect single-lane alternating traffic on the 5th Street bridge beginning at 9:00  pm, and continuing until about 7:00 am. Traffic Control personnel will be on hand to assist commuters and emergency vehicles.

There will be some noise associated with the cleaning, including generator noise. The work is being conducted overnight to minimize impacts on the travelling public.  Both sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians.

Why is the bridge being washed?

Cleaning infrastructure such as bridges helps prolong the life of the structure, removing salt and sand that may have collected over the winter months and reducing the potential for corrosion.
