Opening ceremony scheduled for overpass

A ceremony for the opening of the Hull Street Overpass will be coming in November, but likely long after the first car passes over the new structure.

“We’re hoping to start laying asphalt at the end of next week,” City Engineer Justin Howalt said.

The target completion date is Nov. 7, Howalt said, and a opening ceremony is in the works for the end of the month.

The bridge was closed in June 2008 for safety concerns, and thousands of daily motorists have had to change routes since.
