A new plan could mean a new viaduct this year.
After meeting with the Department of Highway Engineers on Monday, Mayor Jack Keith said there is a proposed plan to close off all traffic to the US 27 North viaduct, re-routing vehicles down Church Street.
Re-routing all traffic, Keith said, would allow contractors to finish the viaduct before the scheduled completion date in 2011.
“It could be done this year if re-routed,” Keith said at Tuesday evening’s city commission meeting.
