Bridge Inspections Completed
Bridge reopened to traffic today
LAWRENCE COUNTY (Wednesday,
October 17, 2018) – Inspections on the Oakley C. Collins Bridge wrapped up earlier
today, and with the entire examination complete, the bridge will not be
restricted during the remainder of the week.
As part of the Ohio
Department of Transportation's annual bridge inspection program, inspectors
from the ODOT District 9 and Central Office bridge departments have been
working to complete a series of routine inspections of the bridge’s cables,
towers and deck this week.
Although crews were
scheduled to be working through Friday, October 19, the inspection team worked
ahead of the four-day schedule and expedited operations to complete the full
inspection in two days. As a result, it will not be necessary to close the
structure Thursday or Friday.
