Champlain Street at the Goose Creek Bridge in the 1800 block will be closed to all thru traffic from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The bridge will be open to all traffic at night and as long as the weather cooperates, the work repairing the long-closed pedestrian bridge will be completed by the weekend.
The construction is being handled by the Marquette Steel Company. The City Council approved a $90,000 quote in April. Repairs initially were put on hold at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commissioner Wayne Eichelkraut said in April getting this project done will be important because people have been walking on the street and finding a sidewalk across Goose Creek is a long trip around.
The bridge itself has remained open to vehicle traffic, but the sidewalks weren’t considered structurally sound and have remained closed.
