Main Street Bridge Reopening November 28

Post Date:11/21/2017 4:19 PM

IT'S AN OPENING THAT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO MISS. GRANDVIEW'S NEW $3 MILLION MAIN STREET BRIDGE IS EXPECTED TO REOPEN TO DRIVERS ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28. 

MODOT AND CONSTRUCTION CREWS HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE BRIDGE SINCE MARCH. IT’S NEARLY 20-FEET WIDER WITH BARRIER SIDEWALKS FOR PEDESTRIANS. “GRANDVIEW” AND “MAIN STREET” ARE IMPRINTED ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BRIDGE AND AN ARCED BLACK STEEL RAILING MATCHES THE FENCING ALL ALONG MAIN STREET.

“THE NEW BRIDGE IS THE CULMINATION OF OUR MAIN STREET IMPROVEMENTS AND ITS REVITALIZATION,” SAYS PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR DENNIS RANDOLPH.

MODOT KANSAS CITY DISTRICT ENGINEER BRIAN KIDWELL ADDED, “WE’RE THRILLED TO PARTNER WITH THE CITY OF GRANDVIEW TO REPLACE AN AGING BRIDGE THAT WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE THIS GROWING COMMUNITY FOR MANY DECADES TO COME."

THE CITY OF GRANDVIEW AND MODOT-KANSAS CITY WILL BE CUTTING THE RIBBON ON THE BRIDGE FOR CEREMONIAL PURPOSES ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22 AT 11:00 A.M.

THE MAIN STREET BRIDGE IS ONE OF TWO BRIDGES MODOT CREWS CONSTRUCTED DURING THE SPRING AND SUMMER.  UNLIKE THE MAIN STREET BRIDGE, MODOT CREWS COMPLETELY CLOSED THE 155TH STREET INTERCHANGE TO DEMOLISH THE BRIDGE AND CONSTRUCT A COMPLETELY NEW WAY TO GET AROUND. A RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY WILL ALSO BE HELD FOR THAT NEW BRIDGE BEFORE IT OPENS TO DRIVERS SOMETIME IN DECEMBER.
