Deck repairs to restrict lanes on Byrne bridge

Bridge deck repairs will require lane restrictions on Byrne Road between Hill Avenue and Airport Highway for four days, starting this morning, the city transportation division announced.

At 9 a.m., the northbound lanes of the Byrne bridge over South Avenue and the Norfolk Southern railroad will be closed. Two-way traffic will be established on the southbound side. City officials advised motorists to expect delays in the area.

Wenz Road and Westwood Avenue are nearby alternatives to Byrne, but both use railroad crossings that sometimes are blocked by slow-moving trains.
