Work on the Senator George Sellar Bridge improvement project won’t be finished until next year according to a report from the State DOT. Officials say The fifth lane and pedestrian cantilever won't be done by Christmas as hoped. At least Motorists will get a break as the night time lane closures will end until next spring. Over the winter, crews will continue to work days (as weather allows) on steel and other work until they can pour the concrete decks next spring.
Here's the information as it appears on the region's construction update web page:
• The 35 mph speed limit remains in effect with narrowed lanes.
• The bridge remains closed to pedestrians:
o Mon. through Sat., LINK Transit will provide free bus service across the bridge on trolley route 19 and bus routes 23 and 25.
