Pershing Avenue Bridge Replacement over I-77
On Tuesday, December 22, crews on behalf of ODOT will close the ramps at I-77 and Pershing Avenue. Starting at 7 a.m., the I-77 northbound exit ramp at Pershing Avenue will close. Motorists will detour as follows: Continue on I-77 north, exit at Broadway Avenue and continue southbound, continue to Pershing Avenue. In addition, the Pershing Avenue entrance ramp to I-77 southbound will close. Motorists will use Pershing Avenue eastbound to Broadway Avenue south to East 55th Street northbound. From East 55th Street, motorists should use I-490 east to I-77 south. These closures will remain in effect for the duration of the project, until fall 2016. Also be aware of traffic pattern changes on Pershing Avenue over I-77. Beginning January 4 at 7 a.m., crews will switch traffic to the northbound lanes while work is performed on the southbound lanes. This too will be in effect for the remainder of the project. The entire project replaces the Pershing Avenue bridge over I-77 and is expected to be complete in the fall of 2016.
All work listed in this update is weather permitting.
