The West 41st Street Bridge between I-90 and Clark Avenue has been closed due to critical findings in the bearings of the superstructure. The Bridge Inspection Division of the Department of Public Works has identified some deficiencies and will be coordinating with maintenance personnel and an outside contractor to remediate the issues. 

The bridge, which provides highway access, goes over Train Avenue. 

No timetable has been given for when repairs will be complete and the bridge will reopen.

Rachael Jackson usually drives over the bridge several times a week. Now she wonders if it wasn't safe.

"This looks a little scary to me. I don't know where the detour is or anything of that nature," Jackson said.

A temporary detour has been put into place to allow traffic flow to continue around this corridor. Drivers are reminded to proceed with caution and obey all posted signs. The detour takes about five to 10 minutes, depending on traffic.
