A gift from ODOT to Grant Ave downtown drivers

After almost a year of construction, a new Grant Avenue bridge over Interstates 70/71 is finally open to drivers!

The bridge takes Grant Ave drivers from E Livingston Ave to Fulton St. across I-70/71.

In addition to the bridge, the project features wider granite sidewalks, a bike lane, improved lighting, and decorative landscaping, according to The Dispatch.

The project was originally expected to be completed by late fall 2018, but a few hiccups, including unexpected pipes beneath the concrete, created delays.

Phase two of the project, expected to begin next year, will connect Fulton Avenue to I-70 east and create a new ramp to Parsons Avenue.
