Lane restrictions in place for Waldvogel Viaduct improvement project
Sixth Street Expressway reduced to one lane in each direction
Hamilton County (Friday, March 2, 2012) – As part of the Waldvogel Viaduct and Sixth Street Expressway improvement project, the Sixth Street Expressway will be reduced from two to one 11-foot lane in each direction starting Tuesday, March 6. This traffic restriction should remain in place for approximately four months.
No other additional restrictions apply at this time, although various temporary lane and/or ramp closures will be in place at future dates, at which times, a traffic advisory will be sent.
U.S. 50 remains reduced to one lane eastbound from Mt. Hope to Evans Street, where it will join the single lane configuration on the Sixth Street Expressway.
East and westbound U.S. 50 traffic will be merged into the right most lane of the existing roadway. All east and westbound US 50 entrance and exit ramps will be maintained.
**VEHICLES OVER 16 TONS ARE RESTRICTED FROM USING THE EXISTING VIADUCT**
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming traffic phase modifications.
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.
