The Gurley Overpass will be closed to all traffic from Monday, September 16th through Saturday, September 28th while a contractor performs routine maintenance on the overpass.
The overpass was closed for one month in June of 2010 and has been closed for shorter durations since then to inspect the structure and perform routine maintenance.
"This closure is necessary for preventive maintenance. We just ask that the public be patient and add some extra time to their commute to get around the closure. I am confident the work will be completed on schedule and hopefully ahead of schedule," said Public Information Officer Joe Lunne. He added, "Drivers who use the Gurley Overpass are asked to use one of the other railroad crossings, including Brooks Avenue, Burma Avenue, Garner Lake Road, or the Highway 14/16 crossing."
