Schantz Avenue Bridge Replacement
April 22, 2019: The work area has been cleared, and the bridge is half demolished. Steel sheeting will be driven over the next 1-1/2 weeks to hold back dirt for removal and replacement of the concrete abutment and retaining walls.
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.

Two-way traffic on South Dixie Drive 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.
Schantz Avenue will be closed at the bridge. Access to South Dixie Highway will be detoured using South Patterson Boulevard, Crauder Avenue, and Sacramento Avenue.
