SC Bridge Maintenance

SC Bridge Maintenance

You may have noticed the signs on either side of the Scotch Creek bridge, mentioning upcoming maintenance. As you drive by it’s difficult to figure out exactly what they’re doing, and what the closures might be. In discussions with MOTI and AIM Roads it seems that right now they are resurfacing the bridge deck and repaving the approaches. So hopefully things will go a bit smoother when this work is done.

This fall, they’re planning on replacing some of the structural timbers underneath the deck. Angela Lagore (Chamber President) and I chatted with Chad Marsh from MoTI last summer and were told that the bridge was in good shape and they had no plans to replace it at this time. Unfortunately, nothing has changed.

Here is the notice that was put out by AIM Roads regarding the closures:

Notice of Upcoming Bridge Maintenance
