Ball Mill Creek Bridge on Spalding Drive Reopens Ahead of Schedule

Ball Mill Creek Bridge on Spalding Drive Reopens Ahead of Schedule

The Ball Mill Creek Bridge, located on Spalding Drive, is open again to traffic. The bridge was closed August 15 when it was determined through an underwater inspection that the bridge had an undermining of one of its foundations. Repairs to the bridge began the following week with an estimated completion date of Sept. 26, 2011.

“We want to thank the residents and local commuters for their patience as we provided the needed maintenance, and we’re pleased to be able to reopen ahead of schedule,” said Kevin Walter, Director of Public Works.

The 34-foot single span steel and concrete bridge was constructed in 1929. The City’s contractor, Engineered Restorations Inc., worked 6 days a week and extended hours to complete the project ahead of schedule.
