Baltimore Street Bridge Structural Analysis To Impact Traffic

June 24th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Steps to determine the full extent of the deterioration of the Baltimore Street bridge will be taking place this week- and it will have an impact on traffic.  City Administrator Jeff Rhodes has said that the Baltimore Street structure- the main gateway to the downtown area from the West Side- will be reduced to one lane beginning Tuesday to allow for bridge analysis.  City engineer Bobby Smith said the work will impact traffic from June 25 to 28- adding that the plan is  to get some analysis performed on the concrete and other areas beneath the bridge. The work is expected to run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and flaggers will route vehicles around the work. As far as the long range picture- Rhodes says he hopes actual repairs can begin as early as next year…
