A project to increase the
life of the Greene Street Bridge starts this Friday, Sept. 13. The project includes installing fiber-reinforced polymer to the bridge deck and floor beams. Utility conduit will be installed along the underside of the bridge and other related work will be completed. The work on the bridge will improve its load rating, allowing larger trucks and loads to use the bridge. Ultimately, the project will extend the life of the bridge and upgrade its service capacity.
That means that through mid-October you can expect
lane restrictions on the bridge and on Greene Street between South Riverton
Avenue and Upriver Drive. The project will continue until mid-November, but
traffic impacts are expected only through the middle of October.
