ROSECRANS AVENUE & BLOOMFIELD AVENUE BRIDGE PROJECT – Week of June 21, 2015

Monday night, June 22 through Wednesday night, June 24, crews will demolish the old Silverbow Avenue pedestrian overcrossing. In order to complete this work, the new pedestrian bridge will be closed nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., June 22 through June 24. This work must be conducted at night in order to limit exposure of work crews to live traffic. Please be advised, this work may be loud and disruptive due to bridge demolition, equipment noise and related construction activity.

Nighttime demolition activity is underway to remove the old Rosecrans Avenue bridge at the I-5 freeway. Bridge demolition activity will require full closures of Rosecrans Avenue in both directions under the I-5 freeway, weeknights between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. This work will be conducted at night in order to minimize impacts to the traveling public and limit exposure of work crews to live traffic. Please be advised this work will be loud and disruptive due to bridge demolition, equipment noise and construction activity.

The map below highlights the work area (in red) where demolition activity is being conducted; local access will be maintained for residents and businesses off Bloomfield Avenue and Firestone Boulevard. However there will be no access to Rosecrans Avenue underneath the I-5 freeway. In addition, the Rosecrans Avenue on and off-ramps to I-5 freeway will also be closed while this work is completed. Motorists will be directed to follow the detour routes highlighted below in green, to bypass the closure area.
