City to address derelict building during bridg rehabilitation Continued from PAGE 1 During the rehabilitation, traffic across the bridge will be limited to one lane with a stop light added at the south end of the bridge to facilitate the traf- fic flow. One concern posed by the council has yet to be worked out--access across the bridge by emergency vehicles. Initially it was planned to provide fire apparatus, ambu- lances and law enforcement with devices that could change the lights. ODOT is now rec- ommending that emergency personnel wait and use the lights, which will result in a 30 second delay. Before that decision is given a stamp of approval, the state will meet with law enforce- ment and fire district represen- tatives. "We have asked for one more meeting with the state traf- fic engineer," Nicholas said. Whatever decision is made, ODOT is planning to monitor the flow of traffic. They have the authority to change the way the signal is functioning, Nicholas said. The council is planning a celebration at the completion of the rehabilitation project. 'q'his is going to be a very good look- ing bridge when we're done," Nicholas told them. That raised another con- Get ready! Get set! 2012-13schoolyear. Splash!
