City bridge work gets underway

Lee’s Summit is working on maintenance and repairs of the Southwest Street and Northwest Chipman Road bridges.

The Main Street Bridge repairs were set for Monday and the Chipman Road bridge will begin Friday. Temporary closures will be required for work on both bridges.

The Main Street bridge over Second Street is expected to remain closed for approximately two weeks. The ramp to Second Street will remain open, as well as the Second Street sidewalk running underneath the bridge. However, intermittent ramp and sidewalk closures may be required. The deck is being milled and replaced with a new concrete overlay and the decorative stone work will be removed. In place of the wood railing, a decorative fence will be installed on top of the concrete barrier. 

Eastbound Chipman Road between Northwest Donovan Road and Northwest Commerce Drive will close from approximately 10 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Monday, June 12. It is to close again from approximately 10 p.m. on Friday, June 16, until 5 a.m. on Monday, June 19. 

Westbound Chipman Road between Northwest Commerce Drive and NorthwestDonovan Road will close from approximately 10 p.m. on Friday June 23, until 5 a.m. on Monday, June 26. The repairs include the expansion joint and deck.
