68th St. Bridge Replacement

Overview

Late fall 2019, crews will begin work to replace the 68th Street Bridge over I-894. The original structure was built in the 1960’s and is seeing areas of distressed concrete.

Schedule

Late October 2019 – Late Summer 2020

Traffic Impacts

  • The 68th Street bridge will be closed to traffic during construction, however access to residences and businesses along 68th Street will be maintained.
    • DETOUR: 68th Street will be detoured along W. Layton Venue, S. 76th Street, W. Forest Home Avenue, and W. Cold Spring Road. 
  • Few, intermittent overnight full freeway closures along I-894 will be required for bridge demolition, girder placement and deck pouring.
    • With these nighttime operations, there may be some temporary noise. Crews will work to minimize these impacts to area residents.
