JFK Bridge to be limited to two traffic lanes starting in December


During the first week of December a three-phase project to repair and upgrade the infrastructure of the JFK Bridge is scheduled to start. The project will span 18 months and conclude in May 2023. The bridge is shown here during the Beach to Bay Relay Marathon in May 2014.

Traveling on the JFK Bridge is about to become a bit trickier. 

During the first week of December a three-phase project to repair and upgrade the infrastructure of the bridge is scheduled to start. 

The project will span 18 months and conclude in May 2023. 

“This project is a maintenance and preservation project on the JFK Bridge,” said Rickey Dailey, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Transportation. “Some of the main items will include concrete repair, replacement of minor substructure components and a concrete overlay of the main bridge deck. There will be a new travel surface on the bridge when the project is completed.” 

For 12 of the 18 months, traffic on the bridge will be limited to one lane in each direction. The bridge will also be closed entirely or in one direction for half-hour periods during the night.
