The first pour of concrete to the northbound lanes on the east side of the Highway 90/Hudson Street Bridge has been rescheduled for December 1st, due to a “glitch” – according to Johnny Macias, Interstate Highway Construction project superintendent. Macias brought in additional workers to fix the problem, but due to the work, the concrete could not be poured until the 1st. The second pouring is still scheduled for the 8th, and the company should still be on schedule to open at least two lanes to traffic before Christmas.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us here at Silver City Radio!
