Wisner Bridge construction slightly delayed, detour remains in effect

Reconstruction of the Wisner Bridge over I-610 is slightly delayed and the detour remains in effect. Construction of the new $19.5M bridge began in December 2015. It was originally scheduled to be completed this spring; however, during construction, the Department of Transportation and Development determined that the finger joints, which connect sections of the bridge deck together, did not fit properly. As a result, the designer is implementing corrective measures to ensure public safety for the design life of the bridge.  This is expected to delay completion of the bridge until September 30, 2017.  This new date will allow the bridge to be open for use by the pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as vehicular traffic at the same time.
