University Drive bridge to be closed to motor vehicles Tuesday
Pedestrians will have one sidewalk, cyclists will have to dismount and walk across
University Drive bridge is set to close to all motorized traffic on Tuesday for an inspection.
The bridge was closed to vehicle traffic for nearly five months in 2019 after an inspection discovered deterioration in the bearings that help the bridge flex under loads in fluctuating temperatures.
On Tuesday, inspectors will take a close look at those repairs to see if they're still holding up.
There will also be service changes to London Transit Commission routes that use the bridge.
There will be a detour in place for routes 6, 13, 27 and 106, which will return to regular service the following day when the bridge is set to reopen to motorized traffic, Wednesday, Nov. 4.
