Bridge work on Denmark Road is on schedule and approximately 30 days from completion.
That’s according to City Engineer Jonathan Zimmermann, who said the dry winter helped keep the schedule on track.
Crews worked to set pre-cast beams Monday.
One of two large “humps” has been removed from the roadway on Denmark to improve sight distance. Zimmermann said if the weather holds out, concrete will be poured on the profile adjustment at Stablestone Drive this week.
Charter Communications still has to move a cable attached to an existing pole at the intersection of St. Andrews and Denmark. That work can’t be completed until Ameren moves its poles, which have been removed from the ground to allow for work with a crane. After the poles and cable have been moved, work on the intersection can begin.
A mini-roundabout will be constructed at the St. Andrews Drive and Denmark Road intersection.
The project also includes widening, resurfacing and sidewalk construction from St. Andrews Drive to Grandview Farms Drive.
The improvements are part of the 2014-17 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) approved by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments in 2015.
This is the second phase of the Denmark Road project. The first phase was completed in 2014 and included new lanes and shoulders from Prairie Dell Road to just east of St. Andrews Drive. Sidewalks also were installed along that stretch of the road.
