Part of Kenosia Avenue will be closed Monday as the City gets ready for a bridge replacement project. Alternating one-way traffic will start Tuesday. The alternate traffic flow will be controlled by a signal system. Officials hope to allow alternating one way traffic on weekends.
One side of the bridge will be repaired at a time in order to avoid a project-long closure. But Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola cautioned that, during certain times, the bridge will be completely closed to traffic to safely perform the replacement work.
The repair project will take about four months.
Delays should be expected during the construction period. City officials are urging people to avoid Kenosia Avenue during the work.
