Here's some great news to kick off your weekend!
The City reached a major milestone as the Crosstown Parkway Extension Project contractor poured concrete for the final bridge deck on Friday, February 8, officially connecting the Walter B. England, III Memorial Bridge over the North Fork of the St. Lucie River.
While the bridge now connects the existing Crosstown Parkway with U.S. Highway 1 at Village Green Drive; drivers will not be permitted to drive over the bridge until project completion. The contractor still has significant activities that need to take place, including the installation of bridge deck joints, barrier walls, highway lighting, Minnesota rail and pedestrian handrail. The contractor also will be planing and grooving the decks, which improve water runoff and rideability for the deck surface.
The contractor also has additional roadway activities taking place this year along U.S. Highway 1 and Coral Reef Street. Residents will see the roadway activities being finalized from Sandia Drive to the river at Coral Reef Street, which are necessary to link traffic to the new bridge. Residents can also anticipate delivery of landscaping and other project aesthetics to put the finishing touches on Crosstown.
