Parts of Gene Field Road will be closed for a bridge replacement beginning Monday August 8th. 

Beginning August 8th Gene Field Road between Ashland Avenue and Indian Trail Drive will be closed for a bridge replacement over Northeast Parkway. 

Additionally, Northeast Parkway, from Ashland Avenue to Northeast Parkway, will also be closed.

Detour routes will be posted.  The bridge replacement project and associated roadway work is scheduled to be completed in February of next year. 

Drivers are asked to exercise caution while driving through work zones for their safety and the safety of working crews. 

The bridge replacement is part of the Bonds for Bridges program, a voter approved $20 Million general obligation bond to repair and replace aging bridges as well as other transportation infrastructure.
