27th Street Viaduct Rehabilitation Project
Updated October 2013
This federally funded bridge rehabilitation project will extend the life of the 27th Street Viaduct, located on 27th Street between Center Street and Theresa Street. The viaduct was constructed in the early 1980s and has reached a point where the bridge structure elements are in need of repair. The project includes replacement of the concrete pavement approach sections that have settled and deteriorated, and work on the bridge expansion joints and bridge rails.
Construction of this project started in March 2013, and all lanes re-opened to traffic during September 2013. Work will resume on Monday, October 7, 2013, which will reduce traffic to one lane on North 27th Street between Fair Street and Cleveland Avenue. Drivers can expect delays and are urged to use alternate routes. Suggested routes are 33rd Street and Antelope Valley Parkway/14th Street. The pedestrian walkway through the project will remain open. However, it will be shifted into the closed lane using channelizing devices to delineate a clear accessible path. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
Overhead work above the following streets will require temporary street closures to safely perform the required construction operations: Leighton Avenue, State Fair Park Drive, and Kimco Drive. These closures will only occur from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and should be infrequent. One of these three streets will be left open to traffic during night work.
