Ross Street Bridge Construction

Construction crews will be placing beams and deck panels.  In order to complete this process, Ross Street will have to be closed at I-40 from 8am - 8pm on the following days.

Tuesday, February 27th
Friday, March 2nd
Wednesday, March 7th

Motorists traveling westbound I-40 needing to access southbound Ross should use the Ross Street exit and stay on the frontage road to the Arthur Street turnaround. Motorists traveling eastbound wanting to access northbound Ross should exit Ross Street and use the turnaround at Nelson Street. Frontage road traffic will still be able to cross Ross Street in both directions.

The Ross Street Bridge project is set to be done April 2019.
