We’re two weeks into the closure of the NE 45th Street Viaduct and construction crews appear to be making a good deal of progress. These demolition photos from SDOT show exactly what was under the street surface we’ve been driving on– wood that isn’t nearly as sturdy as it used to be. Built in the late 1930’s, the viaduct is one of the City’s last timber-supported structures.
The west approach to the viaduct is being replaced, which will keep the road completely closed until September 10. You can track the project here.
