Two-day sidewalk closure planned for Columbia Street Bridge


Continued maintenance on the Columbia Street Bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad will result in the closure of the pedestrian sidewalk for Thursday, October 11, 2012 and Friday, October 12, 2012, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances.

A pedestrian detour will be provided that will direct pedestrians west to Loomis Street to cross the railroad tracks.

The bridge is expected to remain open to vehicular traffic however some of the sidewalk repair could necessitate lane closures that could cause traffic delays. Due to the project’s close proximity to the Naperville Metra Station, motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and expect potential traffic delays in the area.

The Columbia Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project, which began in August, includes repairs to the sidewalk, replacement of the bridge railing and concrete repairs to the bridge structure.

All construction is weather dependent; notice of schedule changes as well as more information about the project will be posted in the City’s Road Closure/Construction Alerts eNewsletter, in the local media when possible and at the Naperville Metra Station.
