MONTOPOLIS DRIVE DETOUR
Beginning the evening of June 14 and lasting one year, eastbound Montopolis Drive traffic will detour via a newly constructed section of roadway adjacent to the existing US 183.
This detour is necessary so that crews can remove the existing Montopolis Drive bridge to northbound US 183 (not the steel truss bridge over the Colorado River) and construct a new and improved bridge over US 183.
To minimize impacts to traffic, the deconstruction and removal of the existing Montopolis Drive bridge took place at night and occured on June 15-between 8 pm and 10 am. This work required a significant detour, and was originally scheduled to extend into the overnights of Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17, but has been canceled due to an expedited work schedule.
