Rt 168 Bypass Bridge Updates

Southbound Bypass Lanes to Reopen Wednesday, May 24

Following a final inspection on Wednesday morning, Public Works will open two southbound lanes around noon on Wednesday, May 24. Thank you for your patience while we worked to fix this important route through our City. We are very grateful that we were able to get the contractor in town just days after we were informed of the incident, that they brought enough supplies and crew members to work 24/7, and that by the time they were able to put eyes on the damage, it was determined that the fix could be accomplished quicker than originally anticipated. While the bulk of the work is behind us, City staff has and will continue to work behind the scenes to track costs associated with the repair and seek full reimbursement of this project from the owner of the dredging company that damaged the bridge.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of some of the work done these past couple of days.
