The city of Dayton’s latest infrastructure investment involves another bridge reconstruction.
The Edwin C. Moses Bridge was closed Feb. 2 to make way for a new replacement bridge over Wolf Creek. The new bridge is expected to be completed by May of 2010. The contractor for the project is Eagle Bridge Company.
As a result of the closure, Edwin C. Moses was closed to traffic between Third Street and Negley Place. The northbound detour will use Third Street to Broadway to Riverview Avenue.
The southbound detour will use the First/Salem Bridge to Robert Drive to Third Street
The existing earth-filled bridge was constructed in 1926. The new bridge will include wider sidewalks, decorative railing and lighting, and cable-stays. The cost for the project is approximately $4.5 million. The city of Dayton is in the process of replacing nine bridges within a seven-year period.
