East 11th Avenue Closed for Bridge Project Beginning Monday

HUTCHINSON –
A bridge replacement project on the east side of Hutchinson starting Monday will have major travel impacts.

The bridge on East 11th Avenue over the East Side Drainage Ditch is being replaced, a project that is expected to take about three months. 11th will be closed to through traffic from Severance to Lorraine, but residents in that area will have access up to the construction site between Cochran and Pleasant streets.

The bridge being replaced was originally constructed in 1930 as a concrete box culvert. Metal pipes were added to it in 1974. An inspection last year found the bridge had deteriorated to a point where weight limits would have to be imposed that would bar use of it by heavy vehicles including school busses, trash trucks, delivery vehicles and fire apparatus.

The new $465,245 bridge being constructed by Mies Construction, will be a multi-celled reinforced concrete box bridge. Current expectations are for the bridge to be re-opened August 26th.
