Greeley Avenue Bridge Open Again

KSAL StaffJuly 1, 2016

The Greeley Avenue Bridge has been completed, and the road is back open to the public.

According to the City of Salina, due to the deteriorating condition of the structure, the bridge was closed to vehicle traffic in late November of 2012. At the time it remained open for pedestrians.

The remaining traffic control signs will be removed next week. Final restoration and sodding will also occur in the near future.

The new bridge includes an 8 feet wide sidewalk, brick pilasters with decorative fence and lighting similar to the bridge into Lakewood Park. Other highlights of the bridge are the aesthetic colored concrete wing walls and the haunched slab design over the old Smoky Hill River Channel.

Kansas Department of Transportation provided 80% of the funding.
