Troubled (14th Street) Bridge Over Waters

Another traffic shift on the 14th Street Bridge

    So you’re finally used to the latest 14th Street Bridge traffic pattern, huh? We’ve got some bad news for you: that pattern is about to change -- again!

    The new configuration will greet you for Monday morning’s commute. That’s when the 14th Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project enters Phase 4. You’ll have a shorter distance to merge (about 1/8 of a mile). Three lanes to the right will be in operation; one lane will be used to the left.

    DDOT crews will spend this weekend preparing the bridge for the shift. That will require a second center lane to be closed, starting at 10 p.m. Friday. Just three lanes of traffic will be in service until Monday morning, when the fourth lane will open.
