The Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek is scheduled to be rehabilitated starting in January 2017 and will be completed in late fall 2017. As a result, the roadway will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the project. A detour route will be provided via Rebecca Street.

In advance of the bridge work, Navy Street will be permanently converted to two-way traffic in late fall of 2016.

Bridge reconstruction work includes removal and replacement of the existing concrete deck and steel girders, as well as repairs to the existing piers and replacement of the bridge abutments.

Once complete, the new bridge will include two travel lanes, a center turn lane and bikes lanes. There will also be a wider pedestrian sidewalk with a barrier wall to separate the sidewalk and vehicular traffic.

New pedestrian railings and pedestrian lookouts will be incorporated into the bridge as well as LED Street lighting.

In addition to the bridge work, Lakeshore Road will also be reconstructed between Navy Street and Forsythe Street. The streetscape materials that will be selected as part of the Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape project will be incorporated into the design for this project. For more information visit the Lakeshore Road Streetscape project.

To learn more about the project, attend the open house on October 19.
