Beginning July 15, Sunnybrook Drive will be closed completely at the bridge crossing Delaware Creek, and Cripple Creek Drive will be reduced to one lane at the bridge crossing Delaware Creek.
The Sunnybrook bridge will be removed in its entirety, while only half of the Cripple Creek bridge will be removed at a time, allowing access in and out of the cul-de-sac north of the bridge. Drivers approaching the Cripple Creek bridge are cautioned to look for traffic already crossing the bridge and wait for opposing traffic to cross.
Removing the bridges will allow construction crews access to the drainage channel to install new wastewater lines, as well as reconstruct a deeper drainage channel with vertical walls. After the channel work is completed, the bridges will be rebuilt.
The one lane closure at the Cripple Creek Drive bridge is expected to last through winter 2020. The closure of the Sunnybrook bridge is expected to last through spring 2020. Detour signs for Sunnybrook Drive will be posted along Green Oaks Drive, Live Oak Drive, Colony Drive and Grauwyler Road.
