Bridge Construction Will Close Part of Greenwood

Drivers and cyclists should expect a seven-week closure

Starting on April 1, BNSF Railway will begin construction as they work to replace the railroad bridge decking over Greenwood Avenue.

The project will take approximately seven weeks to complete, which means there will be some traffic closures for safety to the public as they work on the project.
