56-year-old bridge to receive preventative maintenance and repairs
BRECKENRIDGE – Contractors for the Texas Department of Transportation are scheduled to begin an approximately six-month project to provide preventative maintenance and repairs to the US 180 bridge crossing Hubbard Creek Lake the week of March 26.
The 0.7-mile-long bridge, built in 1962, will receive repairs to various concrete structures above and below the roadway. Additional work will include repairs to the bridge joints, guardrails, and improvements on the bridge approaches.
During the project, motorists can expect intermittent delays as traffic at times will be reduced to one lane. Drivers are reminded that traffic fines are doubled in work zones when workers are present.
The maintenance work will help ensure the bridge can safely carry traffic for decades to come. The bridge currently serves an average of around 3,400 vehicles per day.
Gibson & Associates, Inc. of Balch Springs is the contractor for this project. The contract amount for this project is $2,875,191.47.
TxDOT’s Brownwood District includes Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Lampasas, McCulloch, Mills, San Saba and Stephens counties.
