The east Broadway Bridge is now open to two lanes of northbound traffic in Minot, as construction is substantially complete for 2017 on the U.S. 83 Broadway Viaduct Replacement Project. Along with two lanes of northbound traffic, there are two lanes of southbound traffic on the older, west bridge. The public is encouraged to pay close attention to the cones and barriers currently in place through this stretch of roadway at the heart of Minot.
“We finished with the bulk of the work needed to open up the east Broadway Bridge just a few hours ago,” said Project Manager Brian Bee of Lunda Construction. “The roadway surface is complete, along with temporary striping and the appropriate temporary barriers between the two bridges. We would ask that drivers pay close attention to where they are going, as some, but not all intersections are back to where they were prior to starting the job earlier this year.”
Bee said crews will be placing the permanent lighting on the east bridge next week and possibly pouring concrete on the sidewalk side of the bridge, and to expect some temporary lane closures at this time. The replacement of both bridges was programmed to be a two-construction-season project, with work coming to a winter halt for the next three or four months. Lunda Construction will start demolition of the west Broadway Bridge in late winter or early spring 2018, depending on the weather.
Individuals are reminded to be patient while driving through this area and use appropriate caution in the construction zone.
