The Artillery Road bridge is tentatively scheduled to be closed for 24 hours, beginning at 9:00am on Saturday, August 8. This work is weather dependent and may occur later in the week if weather is more accommodating. Please follow posted DETOUR ROUTES. Drivers traveling over the Artillery Road Bridge will be DETOURED to either Hiland Road or the North Eagle River overpass. In order to exit from the west side of the highway at Artillery Road, drivers will need to use the new Eagle View Drive frontage road to Hiland Road DETOUR. Drivers traveling to the west side of the Glenn Highway at Artillery Road will need to use the DETOUR through North Eagle River.
- Drivers should be aware of crews working on the bridge behind barriers, as well as intermittent flagging operations and SINGLE-LANE CLOSURES.
- Crews will be working at night and drivers should expect LANE CLOSURES.
