10th Avenue bridge lane closure for inspections next week

The Montana Department of Transportation is conducting the annual bridge inspection on the 10th Avenue South/Warden Bridge eastbound beginning Aug. 26 through Aug. 28 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The bridge will have a single lane closure during the duration of the inspection.

The public should expect single lane closure, reduced speed limit of 35 mph, inspection vehicles and workers on the bridge itself, according to MDT.

The lane closure will be for right/driving or upstream lane on the bridge. Flaggers will be present in the work zone on River Road beneath the bridge when the inspection vehicle is over the roadway.

Travelers are encouraged to adjust their travel time and schedules accordingly.

Motorists are reminded to watch for work crews and equipment, as well as signs indicating reduced speed limits. Posted limits are enforced until signs indicate that the work zone has ended. Fines double when workers are present in the work zone.
