Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge to Open in AprilSalem-News.com
Remaining activities must be completed in sequence and are weather-dependent.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Despite a project timeline setback early on due to delayed delivery of the large supporting arches, the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge is on track to open to the public in April.
The bridge structure, including deck panels, rib arches and other infrastructure is now self supporting. Still to be completed are the bridge deck surface, structure tensioning, and removal of the temporary work bridge.
The bridge design is very unique and complex. Therefore, the remaining activities must be completed in sequence and are weather-dependent.
Remaining activities include:
Once work begins to remove the temporary work bridge, the new bridge and south end of Riverfront Park will be closed temporarily.
A Grand Opening celebration will likely occur in August once all work at Riverfront Park is completed and the temporary work bridge is removed.
The City appreciates the public's patience as the bridge takes shape and nears completion. Once finished, the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge will be an iconic and beautiful addition to the City of Salem skyline.
