Schantz Avenue Bridge Project

Posted on March 15, 2019

The Schantz Avenue Bridge over South Dixie Highway will undergo a complete replacement and the retaining wall along South Dixie Highway will be repaired and sealed. Construction is now underway. The project is expected to take 7 to 8 months.

Construction Details and Progress Updates 

Schantz Avenue is closed at the bridge. Access to South Dixie Highway is detoured using South Patterson Boulevard, Crauder Avenue, and Sacramento Avenue.  Two-way traffic on South Dixie Highway will be maintained, though, reduced from two lanes to one lane in each direction. Northbound traffic will not able to turn left at Mayo Avenue, Carrollton Avenue, Prosser Avenue, nor Calvary Drive. Drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes during peak traffic hours to avoid possible delays.
