Robert Street Bridge to close, no parking to take effect on Main Street
The Robert Street Bridge will close to all traffic on or after May 24, 2022 beginning at 5 a.m. local time for extensive reconstruction. To allow for added traffic volume, Main Street, between just south of S. 3rd Street and N. 3rd Street, will be restriped to four lanes of active traffic, removing all on-street parking. All parking on side streets will remain available. Pedestrian detours will be marked on sidewalks. See the attached map.
The bridge will undergo a total deck replacement, including a dedicated left turn lane northbound, signal coordination at Third Street, decorative lighting, a parapet wall and wider sidewalk along with a decorative fence/rail. When the project is complete, the bridge will be safer for pedestrian and vehicular traffic and more aesthetically-pleasing.
Traffic signals will be coordinated through the Main Street corridor to allow for better traffic flow in the downtown area. Additional signage will also be placed at significant intersections.
The bridge will reopen and Main Street will return to two lanes of traffic with on-street parking on or before Aug. 27, 2022.
