Speaking to KPLC this morning, DOTD Public Information Officer, Tammy York, reported that Phase Two of the I-210 bridge construction project is complete and preparations are underway to enter Phase Three. As a result, the formerly closed eastbound side of the bridge has opened one lane, with one lane remaining open on the westbound side.

This is expected to last approximately two weeks while the concrete barriers are moved to allow construction to begin on the westbound side of the bridge, after which both lanes on the eastbound side will be used for two-way traffic in the same way the eastbound side has been used over the past several months.

A local resident, Chuck Guintard, captured the opening on video and shared it to his Facebook page, which you can view below.
