Be Alert for Road Closure and Shifting Lanes

Posted on August 8, 2017 at 11:02 AM by Communications Department

Construction Begins on Bland Boulevard Bridge

Repair work on the Bland Boulevard Bridge over I-64 starts tonight, weather permitting. To minimize disruption to the traveling public, the work takes place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday with some weekend work during the daytime hours possible.  The project requires a partial road closure and shifting lane patterns over the course of construction, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month.    work zone

Improvements being made include replacing a bridge deck joint and installing deck sealer. Repairs to the deck joints and application of deck sealer extends the service life of the bridge and reduces further damage to the deck joints due to missing sections. This work also reduces the risk of costly future maintenance and repairs.
