A full closure of U.S. Highway 50 over Echo Summit that was planned for mid-October is being postponed until next year.
The seven precast bridge girders needed for the Echo Summit Sidehill Viaduct (bridge) Replacement Project will not be ready in time for an October closure. Instead, contractor Q&D Construction will winterize the job site and come back to finish the project next year.
This is a two-year project that the contractor was attempting to accelerate. It is still on track to be finished next year.
Ongoing work on the bridge is taking place daytime Monday through Friday with reversing one-way traffic controls and delays up to 20 minutes.
