Construction has begun. The contractor has installed traffic signs, begun clearing and grubbing, and roadway asphalt milling. Two lanes in each direction (4-lanes) on SR 255 will remain open daily between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. with the additional lane construction on SR 255 anticipated to last 12-months.
A new bridge at Old Madison Pike will be staged constructed to allow one lane of traffic in each direction (2-lanes) across the bridge between January 2020 to mid-2021. Contractors will begin shifting traffic on Old Madison Pike at Research Park Boulevard to the south side for bridge construction to begin on January 23, 2020. All access ramps will remain open during this time. Northbound traffic on Research Park Boulevard exiting to Old Madison Pike heading west to Cummings Research Park will be converted to a free-flow movement to minimize stacking of traffic on Research Park Boulevard and I-565. Westbound Old Madison Pike will be required to turn right toward Bradford Drive to access Cummings Research Park. Residents and businesses along Old Madison Pike, east of Research Park Boulevard are encouraged to use I-565 to access Bridge Street during the bridge construction.
Contractors will begin with demolition of the existing bridge on the north side nightly as traffic on Research Park Boulevard is shifted into one lane in each direction during the night hours. Traffic on Research Park Boulevard will remain 2 lanes in each direction (4-lanes) during daytime hours.
Please use caution in the area as traffic control patterns will tend shift as bridge work progresses. Please see below layouts for additional information.
