Birmingham Bridge work has intermittent closures


Work platform installation under the Birmingham Bridge (Route 2085) was slated to continue on Monday night, March 23, weather permitting.

Single-lane closures and intermittent rolling stoppages of five minutes or less will occur on eastbound (outbound) I-376 (Parkway East) under the Birmingham Bridge weeknights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Friday night, March 27.

This work is part of $28.5 million Birmingham Bridge Preservation Project, which includes painting of the entire superstructure, steel repairs, bearing replacements, substructure repairs, light pole replacements and a concrete overlay. Construction will conclude in the spring of 2017.
