Lucasville Road Bridge repair and upgrade

As part of the municipality’s 2024/25 Capital Plan the Lucasville Road bridge will undergo repair and upgrades starting April 2024 through January 2025. This work is necessary to ensure continued use of the bridge and modernization of some features in alignment with current construction standards. 

In addition to concrete repairs, the planned work includes:

  • installing new barriers and a wider sidewalk to improve pedestrian use;
  • removal of the expansion joints to reduce future maintenance; and,
  • repaving of Lucasville Road on the bridge and bridge approaches.

Current status

Starting early April, contractors will begin pre-construction set-up which may result in minor traffic impacts. Construction is expected to begin mid-April 2024 through mid-January 2025. Although the bridge will not be closed during this period, starting late-May / early-June construction efforts will require reducing the bridge to one lane throughout construction. Crossing the bridge will be facilitated through signal lights operating 24 hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week throughout the construction period.
