Late October 2019 – fall 2020
- 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.
