Construction Staging

Stage One

  • The three through lanes on Route 440 southbound will be shifted to the right using the outside shoulder as a through lane.
  • The left lane of Route 440 northbound will be shifted to the southbound roadway using a temporary crossover through the median.
  • The crossover lane will continue to carry northbound traffic and be separated from southbound traffic by a concrete median. The two remaining through lanes on the Route 440 northbound roadway will be shifted to the left or inside of the bridge. Once the travel lanes are shifted, the rightmost or outside portion of the bridge deck and girders will be removed and the new sections of the superstructure will be lifted into place.
