One-Year Construction Schedule Chosen For Harris Overpass Project|
Mayor Coleen J. Seng announced September 22 that following an extensive public opinion process, the aging Harris Overpass will close for reconstruction in 2007 for about one year. Total closure of the overpass will save about $5 million in construction costs and reduce construction time by about half, compared to an alternative option to have limited traffic during a two-year construction period.
