Cone Zone/Construction Updates

Riverland Pedestrian Bridge:

Construction on the Riverland Pedestrian Bridge will commence soon. The contractor (Z Contractors) will be mobilizing equipment Monday January 23, 2017. The contractor will be starting on pavement removals, bridge abutment work, signage and traffic control.  It may be necessary to close the Riverland Drive road bridge to non-emergency vehicle traffic in order to facilitate the installation of the new bridge.  The closure is expected to last no more than 24 hours. An update will be provided along once details of the closure are finalized. The bridge is anticipated to be complete and open for use June 2017.

Dodge Park Pedestrian Bridge:

Construction of the new Dodge Park Pedestrian Bridge has commenced. The contractor (Davis Construction Company) will be working on both sides of the river to complete the installation. The contractor will access the work site on the south side of the Clinton River via the gravel path located at the far west end of the Dodge Park parking lot. Site access for work on the north side of the Clinton River will be gained through DPW Parks and Grounds. Initial work will consist of some tree removals and a temporary enclosure diverting water for the installation of the south bridge foundation. The Dodge Park path system and existing bridge will remain open during construction. There will be some path detours and the potential for short term closures to facilitate construction. The existing bridge will remain in service until the new bridge is open for use. Work is anticipated to be complete in June 2017.  Attached are two project maps. The first map shows the project location in relation to the Dodge Park trail system. The second map is a detailed project map of the work area. The three pictures below (from April 5, 2017) show the first section of the bridge being set on the foundation.
