Thompson River Bridge Closure Postponed

Wednesday’s closure of the Thompson River Bridge on Route 190 in Livingston County has been postponed.

Construction that must be completed prior to the second of two scheduled bridge deck pours is still underway, delaying the closure.

Crews will now close the bridge on Sunday, November 8, at 8 p.m.

The around-the-clock closure will continue through Thursday, November 12, at noon.

Emergency vehicles ONLY will be permitted to cross the bridge beginning the morning of November 9.

Non-emergency traffic will be permitted to resume use of the bridge the afternoon of November 12.

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 in early November.
