Begins on Bland Boulevard Bridge
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.
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
