Bellaire Avenue Pedestrian Bridge Progress Video – Aug 2021
Throughout the corridor, access for pedestrians and cyclists has continued to be a priority. This project has already rebuilt and reopened five pedestrian bridges,providing safer connectivity for the community. In our latest video, check out some interesting information regarding our sixth pedestrian bridge, at Bellaire Avenue, as crews work to complete and open that bridge later this season.
Stephenson Highway Reconfiguration
Stephenson Highway bridge over I-75 was demolished in mid-September and will not be replaced. The I-75 Modernization project will rebuild and convert Stephenson Highway to handle two-way traffic north of Gardenia Avenue. Once complete, the northbound I-75 service drive traffic will turn left (to head west) at Gardenia Avenue and cross over I-75 and then turn right (to head north) at Stephenson Highway on the new two way section toward 12 Mile Road. This work is currently scheduled to be completed during the 2022 construction season in conjunction with the replacement of the Gardenia Avenue bridge. The ultimate configuration of the Gardenia Avenue bridge and Stephenson Highway in this area can be found at the following link https://www.modernize75.com/media/zpciqqbk/gardenia-avenue-bridge-reconfiguration-to-accommodate-northbound-stephenson-highway.pdf
