Lane closures planned for Indianapolis bridge



Indianapolis, Indiana – Starting Wednesday, people using the West 16th Street bridge should expect some extra traffic.

On Wednesday, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works expects to close the westbound lanes of the bridge over Little Eagle Creek for rehabilitation.

During the closure, a contractor will be rehabilitating the bridge.

Two-way traffic will be maintained in the eastbound lanes while the westbound lanes are closed.

Traffic will be re-routed to that side so the contractor can work on the eastbound lanes when rehabilitation work is done on the westbound side.

Later this year, the bridge is expected to fully re-open. When complete, the bridge will feature a new deck, five travel lanes, new bridge approaches, and sidewalks on both sides.
