Walnut Street between Comstock Ave. and Main St. is closed due to bridge construction. Detour signs have been posted. Please use caution.

Construction began on Monday, August 7th on the replacement of the Walnut Street Bridge in Ivoryton. The project involves removing the existing structure and replacing it with a single span design. The section of Walnut Street between Main Street and Comstock Avenue will be closed during construction. A signed detour will be set up to direct traffic through Comstock Avenue. Please use caution and pay close attention to police officers, flaggers, and construction sign directions.

We anticipate substantial completion soon so that the bridge can be open for the winter months. In spring, the road will close again for a short time to complete the final road work phase.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience while we complete this project.
