The Schantz Avenue Bridge over South Dixie Highway underwent a complete replacement, and the retaining wall along South Dixie Highway will be repaired and sealed.
The Schantz Avenue Bridge over South Dixie Highway is open to traffic. Minor construction activities will continue during the next few weeks prior to the project going dormant for the winter. Traffic impact will be limited to lane reductions, and no detours will be necessary. In the spring, the remaining construction will resume, and the public artwork will be installed.
Rather than reconstructing another unremarkable concrete bridge structure with utilitarian chain-link fence, we collaborated with our CitySites Public Art Program to seek an artist who designed a one-of-a-kind public art installation. The art will integrate seamlessly in to the new bridge and will create a signature entry feature for the City reflecting the artistry of the trolley cars which once traveled the Dixie corridor and the designs on the historic cash registers showcased at nearby Carillon Park.
