Work begins Monday to replace a heavily-traveled bridge on Chatham Road that has been labeled “structurally deficient.”
The bridge between Iles and Jerome carries around 19,000 cars a day. In order to accommodate the work, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction on what are usually the northbound lanes on Chatham. In addition, Reed Avenue will be closed at Chatham Road during the first phase of construction, which should last through the winter.
Drivers are advised to use caution and to consider alternate routes in heavy traffic periods.
