The demo’ed half of Long Street is looking pretty solid. Not sure how long until it’s paved and re-opened, but it can’t be too much longer…December 24, 2012 12:07 am at 12:07 am #486490
Looks like the bridge deck has been capped and probably nearly ready for some weight on it. Not sure when it’s going to open to traffic.
Crazy to see how much higher the road surface is than the old half of the bridge. Has more of an arch to it where it’s maybe a full two feet higher up in the very middle.

East-bound traffic on Long Street was switched over to the north (new) side of the bridge a few days ago and demolition of the south (old) side began this weekend. Just took a few photos this afternoon and it’s already nearly half gone:February 10, 2013 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #486492February 11, 2013 2:38 am at 2:38 am #486493
That second video is crazy, those cars passing by are so close to the demo workFebruary 12, 2013 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #486494
So, they worked on this all night long, from 10am until… whenever…February 19, 2013 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #486495
Long Street Bridge Demolition Almost Complete

Demolition of the Long Street bridge over I-71 should be completed by the end of the week, according to ODOT. The demo work started in April of last year, when half of the bridge was taken down and work began on construction of the new bridge. That new section is now open for traffic, allowing for the demolition of the remainder of the old bridge. Cars, buses and people have been able to cross the freeway on Long Street throughout the entire project.

I wish ODOT would extend Elijah Pierce and Lester to Broad as part of this phase. It would make those on-ramps and exits so much more usable to traffic. As thing stand, it could be well over a decade before the next phase is complete.February 24, 2013 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #486497
Going, going, gone…

The pilars are still being rebuilt, so the bridge is in half. I expect it to move along pretty quickly this summer:July 29, 2013 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #486499
Bridge girders going in. This bridge is going to be crazy-wide once it’s complete:
