Schantz Avenue Bridge Replacement
June 13, 2019: Most of the piles on the west side have been driven…some to more than 45′ deep. Once pile driving is complete on the west side, the west concrete footer will be constructed using reinforcing steel and forms. Next, this area will be backfilled, the crane re-mobilized, and the piles on the east side will be driven.
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.
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.
