South Rice Ave Bridge

What is being done to the South Rice Ave Bridge?

The current bridges will be demolished and replaced with higher, longer, and wider bridges. This will increase the channel's capacity, allowing for more flood waters to flow throughout Brays Bayou. The plan is for segments of the bridges to remain open to commuter and pedestrian traffic during the construction period, with temporary lane closures to the North and Southbound lanes as the bridges are being reconstructed. Construction began in Spring 2021 and is anticipated to be complete in Fall 2021.

Construction Updates

Construction on the South Rice Ave bridge began in Spring 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in Fall 2021. The bridge project will cost approximately $9,700,000.
