Due to extreme drought conditions in Lancaster County, the City is asking community members to follow the City’s voluntary water conservation plan that went into effect at 5 p.m. Friday, June 2, 2023.
The purpose of this project is to preserve the transportation system, improve the reliability of the transportation system, and perpetuate the mobility of the traveling public.
The 27th and Fairfield bridge over Salt Creek was built in the mid 1980's and is in need of rehabilitation. The existing bridge expansion joints are on top of the back wall and have failed, allowing for road salt and water to seep onto the back wall and abutment bearings. The jersey barrier rail is also showing signs of deterioration. The appropriate pedestrian protection on the west side of the bridge needs to be installed. The northeast corner wing on the abutment needs to be re-built to correct overturning and separation from the abutment, and repair the leaning traffic signal pole.
The West “O” Street bridge over Salt Creek was constructed in mid to late 1990's. Currently the existing approach and paving sections are settling at the grade beam. The settling has created a consistent maintenance issue.
