U.S. Route 50 lane closure scheduled for bridge work

Hamilton County (Friday, Aug. 14, 2015) – Continuing concrete overlay work on U.S 50/6th Street Expressway will require a lane closure next week.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 17, the right lane of westbound U.S. 50 will be closed between the Mehring Way exit and Evans Street for approximately ten days. Traffic will be maintained and all work is weather dependent.

The concrete deck overlay and bridge painting work currently being conducted on the northern Sixth St. Expressway Bridge was originally part of the Waldvogel Viaduct project completed last year. The work on the northern bridge was moved to this year because of delays and unforeseen circumstances involving the Waldvogel Viaduct project. It is expected to be completed in Summer 2016

Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming lane closure.

To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
