Starting the week of February 5, a one-month full closure will be implemented on Front Street between Begbie Street and E. Columbia Street. Front Street Mews will remain open.
This closure is required for crews to offload steel girders, build temporary support structures, and begin installing girders, which will form the new bridge deck between Front Street and Columbia Street.
While this full closure is in effect, drivers will be detoured to Columbia Street. Trucks will continue to use official truck routes (including observing applicable time restrictions). All traffic pattern changes and detours will be well-signed, and traffic control personnel will be on-site to direct traffic as required.
Additional closures of both Front Street and Columbia Street will be required to install girders and build the new bridge deck over the roadway. The next closure will be a full closure of Columbia Street for crews to lift girders across this section of roadway. Front and Columbia will not be closed at the same time, and more information will be provided in advance.
