Eighth Street Bridge Closed Tuesday-Friday For Final Work

By Beth Milligan | Dec. 6, 2021

The Eighth Street bridge will close to all traffic Tuesday through Friday this week for planned final construction work, including the installation of architectural fascia panels and the removal of construction barges from the Boardman River.

When the City of Traverse City reopened the bridge on November 19, it noted that staff were still waiting on the delivery of the architectural fascia panels and would need to close the bridge again to install them once they were delivered. Staff decided to allow traffic on the bridge in the meantime, however.

Following the closure this week - with the bridge expected to be reopened by the end of the day Friday - the bridge is anticipated to stay open for the winter. A brief closure may be needed again in the spring, according to a city release.
