Computer generated rendering of preliminary bridge replacement plan.


Contract bidding and construction scheduling concerns have led the Village of Fontana staff and engineering consultants to recommend a delay until October 2015 for the commencement of the South Lakeshore Drive bridge replacement project. When recently preparing to put the approved construction plans out for the bidding process, it was determined by the project engineers that the July 4, 2015 deadline goal is unattainable, especially if there are any delays for weather or for the construction process and cement curing requirements.


The updated bridge construction schedule was established as follows:

  • Approved Construction Plans put out for bids: April 30, 2015; bid opening date May 21, 2015.
  • Village Board consideration for Bid Approval: Monday, June 1, 2015.
  • Construction Commencement: October 5, 2015 (NOTE: The emergency replacement deck will be removed and the bridge will be closed to motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic until the May 13, 2016 completion date).
  • Geneva Lake Channel closure: October 5 to 9, 2015 (NOTE: Following this initial five-day period, the Geneva Lake Channel from the Abbey Harbor will be open for boaters on weekend days throughout the rest of the 2015 season; however, the channel will be closed for some weekday time periods when the construction activities will prohibit the safe passage of boats at the “slow no-wake speed,” and at times during the final stages of mounting the new bridge deck. In the spring there may be some channel closures to set the girders, if they are not already set during the winter months. The staging of the construction activities and the scheduling of opening and closing times for the channel will be coordinated  throughout the construction period by the project engineers and contractor with the employees of the Abbey Harbor Association and village staff.
  • Substantial Completion Date: May 13, 2016.
The repaired bridge currently is not open for truck or trailer traffic, so it is still being detoured south on Highway 67 to County Highway B, to Indian Hills Road and back to South Lakeshore Drive.

Pedestrians are able to walk over the repaired bridge, but the sidewalk under the bridge will not be opened until the replacement project is completed.
