Clark Street bridge demolition.
Demolition of the Clark Street structure over 18th Street South started Monday, June 10. This will be the final bridge demolition for the project.
There will be a series of eastbound and westbound closures on 18th Street between South Eads and South Bell Streets during this work. Northbound South Bell Street between 18th and 15th Streets also will be closed. Detours are expected to last for 2-3 weeks, weather permitting.
Here is the current schedule of 18th Street South closures (subject to change):
Eastbound 18th Street closed (south side of street): Monday through Wednesday, June 10 to June 12
Westbound 18th Street closed (north side of street): Thursday through Wednesday, June 13 to June 19
Eastbound 18th Street closed (south side of street): Thursday through Friday, June 20 to June 21.
One direction of travel on 18th Street will be open at all times during the demolition. Drivers are encouraged to use 15th and 20th Streets South as alternate routes.
During each eastbound and westbound closure on 18th Street, the sidewalk and bike lane on that side of the street will be closed.
During weekends, no demolition work is planned, but detours will remain in place.
