“It’s on track to definitely be operational by the end of the month,” said Clayton Burke, IDOT project manager on the Lansing bridge project. 

At the monthly Bridge Talk held at the Meehan Memorial Lansing Public Library Thursday, April 11, Burke addressed the bridge repairs and confirmed that the existing bridge will be open again by the end of April. 

“Even with the repair they’re still pretty close to schedule on keeping the new bridge moving,” continued Burke. The new bridge is intended to be open by the end of 2026.
