Thompson River Bridge Closure Coming Next Week

The Thompson River Bridge on Route 190 in Livingston County will close next week as part of the bridge deck replacement project.

The bridge is scheduled to close for the second of two scheduled bridge deck pours Wednesday, November 4, at 8 p.m.

The closure will continue through Sunday, November 8, at noon.

Emergency vehicles ONLY will be permitted to cross the bridge beginning the morning of Novemebr 5.

Non-emergency traffic will be permitted to resume use of the bridge the afternoon of November 8.

The extended closure for non-emergency traffic is in order to allow the concrete on the new driving surface to completely cure.

When the bridge reopens, it will again be open to only one lane, with the 10-foot width restriction in place.

All traffic will be directed over a signed detour route on Routes 190, U.S. Route 65 and Route 6 through Jamesport and Trenton.

As with all construction, work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.

Additional work will be needed before the project is complete.

Contractors plan to have the bridge open to two-way traffic by Thanksgiving.
