Construction began January 2020. The contractor has resurfaced the outer lanes to shift traffic while they continue to work in the median of Research Park Boulevard. 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.The contractor is currently 72% complete with the roadwork along SR 255 and is paving two lanes in the center. Crews are installing a new concrete barrier wall in the center, and will complete the final asphalt layer in late 2020. The Bradford Drive northbound ramp bridge is approximately 90% complete on the north end of the project. The culvert for the Research Park ramp is approximately 60% complete and should be finished by the end of 2020.
The Old Madison Pike bridge will consist of new wider travel lanes, 10-foot wide multiuse paths on each side, and decorative rails and lighting. The contractor continues to stage construct the Old Madison Pike bridge which is approximately 45% complete while traffic continues to have one lane in each direction while under construction. The north half has been demolished and new girders have been set over the roadway. The north half of the new bridge is scheduled to be assembled by early 2021. Then two lanes will be shifted to the new bridge (north side) to begin demolition and reconstruction of the south half. All work on this project is anticipated to be completed by late 2021 due to the staggered construction timelines associated with the bridge schedule.
