Louise Street Bridge Replacement

Project Overview:

The City will replace the bridge on Louise Street over Beaver Creek. On January 19, 2018, the City-maintained Louise Street Bridge closed as a precautionary measure after a regularly scheduled bi-annual inspection indicated the bridge had deteriorated Thumbnailfaster than expected.  During this inspection, findings concluded that the bridge is no longer safe for vehicle passage. Pedestrians will still be able to cross the bridge, so students will still be able to walk to school as they normally do until the bridge is replaced.
