3/23/21: Construction is now underway. 209th St. (Carrigan Rd.) is closed to traffic for the duration of the project, and will tentatively reopen to traffic on or before Friday, May 29, 2021.
During the closure, local traffic should utilize the signed detour route of Little Chicago Road, SR-38, and Hague Road. Property owners will continue to have access to their properties through the construction area.
In addition to the roadway closure, waterway restrictions at the bridge will be required throughout construction on days overhead construction poses a safety hazard. This will include bridge deck demolition, forming the bridge deck, and beam painting.
Bridge 98 carries Carrigan Rd. (209th St.) over Morse Reservoir.
Reason for Project
The age, condition, and importance of this bridge over Morse Reservoir warrants bridge preservation.
Bridge Rehabilitation / Preservation – The bridge deck will be replaced. The end bents will be converted to semi-integral, and the beams will be cleaned and painted in order to preserve the life of the beams.
