ECHO SUMMIT SIDEHILL VIADUCT PROJECT
HIGHWAY 50 CLOSURE AT ECHO SUMMIT POSTPONED
A full closure of U.S. Highway 50 over Echo Summit that was planned for mid-October is being postponed until next year.
The seven precast bridge girders needed for Echo Summit Sidehill Viaduct (bridge) Replacement Project will not be ready in time for an October closure. Instead, contractor Q&D Construction will winterize the job site and come back to finish the project next year.
This is a two-year project that the contractor was attempting to accelerate the work on. It is still on track to be finished on time next year.
CURRENT TRAFFIC CONTROLS
One-way traffic controls are in place weekdays 24/5, beginning Monday at 3 p.m. and ending at noon on Fridays weekly.
Expect up to 20-minute delays at Echo Summit Sidehill Viaduct (bridge).
