Temple Ave. Eastbound Closed Over Bridge Concerns

COLONIAL HEIGHTS (WRIC) – The Temple Avenue eastbound bridge has been closed for the implementation of emergency structural repairs.

Crews were out Wednesday
afternoon doing work on the bridge, but as they got working and dug a little
deeper, they realized that there some problems that were much too serious.

“Basically the
concrete was coming apart there were problems with regard to reinforcement for
the bridge and some other structural things,” says Lt. Joe Boisseau.

Eastbound traffic along Temple Avenue will be detoured north on Boulevard to Ellerslie Avenue, east to Conduit Road and then south to Temple Avenue.

This detour will be in effect approximately two weeks while emergency structural repairs are completed.

Westbound Temple Avenue and Temple and I-95 intersection are not part of the closure.
