The Slater Avenue Bridge is tentatively scheduled for construction activities in mid to late August 2018. Construction activities beneath the bridge, such as removing guardrail and installing temporary shoring, are anticipated in the coming weeks to prepare for the demolition of the bridge. The partial demolition allows the bridge to remain open to traffic during construction of the new bridge. The 405 Community Outreach Team hosted a neighborhood meeting about the construction on July 14 at which 24 residents attended. More information will be available as the demolition date approaches. For questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction activities scheduled throughout the project area include:
- Crews will continue to perform clearing and grubbing. Clearing and grubbing is an activity where crews remove trees, shrubs and other vegetation to prepare for construction.
- Installing K-rail, temporary concrete barriers used to separate traffic lanes and work areas.
- Crews will install temporary signage, lighting and paving in the project area to prepare for construction.
Please be advised that there will be a temporary increase in noise from equipment operations.
