5/7/21: Construction is underway. 209th St. (Carrigan Rd.) is closed to traffic for the duration of the project, and will tentatively reopen to traffic on or before Friday, May 29, 2021.
During the closure, local traffic should utilize the signed detour route of Little Chicago Road, SR-38, and Hague Road. Property owners will continue to have access to their properties through the construction area.
Please be advised, beginning on or after Wednesday, May 19, the Morse Reservoir channel at the Carrigan Road bridge will be closed to under-bridge traffic for ten days. The waterway is scheduled to be closed to thru traffic and will tentatively reopen to traffic on or before Friday, May 28. The closure is required due to overhead construction activities that pose a safety hazard below the bridge. The contractor will be completing bridge painting and removing the under-bridge safety system during this closure.
Bridge 98 carries Carrigan Rd. (209th St.) over Morse Reservoir.
Reason for Project
The age, condition, and importance of this bridge over Morse Reservoir warrants bridge preservation.
Bridge Rehabilitation / Preservation – The bridge deck will be replaced. The end bents will be converted to semi-integral, and the beams will be cleaned and painted in order to preserve the life of the beams.
