Schantz Avenue Bridge Replacement
June 11, 2020: The project is substantially complete. Staff will soon develop a punch list for close-out of construction activities.
This project is the replacement of the Schantz Avenue bridge over northbound South Dixie Drive. Additionally, the retaining wall along South Dixie Drive will be repaired and sealed.
Public art, administered through the CitySites Public Art Program, will be integrated into the project. Information on the artwork can be viewed at: https://www.playkettering.org/schantz-avenue-bridge-project.
The intersection of South Dixie Drive and Schantz Avenue.
The remaining work may involve short term closures of northbound South Dixie Highway, with traffic being minimally detoured over the new bridge using existing ramps. See a detour map HERE. Two-way traffic will otherwise be maintained on South Dixie Highway and Schantz Avenue despite lane reductions.
Drivers are encourage to use alternative routes during peak traffic hours to avoid possible delays.
Contractor: Eagle Bridge has been awarded the contract.
Project Engineer: John Sliemers, P.E.
