Waldvogel/Sixth St lane closures

The Waldvogel Viaduct/Sixth Street Expressway will be reduced to one lane in each direction today.

The construction is part of a $68 million project to replace the load-restricted structure with an at-grade roadway and five new ramp bridges.

One eleven-foot lane will be open in each direction, with all traffic diverted into the right-most lane. This restriction will last for approximately four months.

In addition, U.S. 50 will be reduced to one lane eastbound from Mt. Hope Ave to Evans St.

All exit ramps will be maintained. Vehicles over 16 tons are prohibited.

More than 50,000 motorists pass through the Waldvogel Viaduct/River Road corridor daily.
