Morrison Bridge repairs will impact south bridge path in April
Construction work on the Morrison Bridge will require equipment and staff to be staged on the south path of the bridge in April, as crews use hatches in the path to lower construction equipment down to the lift span pit below the bridge deck. The contractor is attaching thousands of pounds of weight to the bridge counterweights to balance the heavier deck that will be installed on the lift span this year.
The southside path will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians during the work, but the path will be more congested at times.
