​​Project Updates

Spring 2019:

During work on the Hawthorne Lane Bridge over eastbound Independence Boulevard (US 74) in fall 2018, a problem was identified with the girder alignment. Because the girders do not fit the specifications for alignment, bridge work has stopped. The vertical alignment of the girders is not in tolerance. This means, the curvature in the girders does not fit required contract specifications.

The project contractor has been ordered to remanufacture the girders. Given the estimated timeframe on girder manufacturing, the contractor can resume work on the bridge in fall 2019.

Significant progress continues with other elements of the project in the Elizabeth, Uptown and West End corridors. Phase 2 is estimated to open late 2020/early 2021.
