The Village of Fontana bridge construction contractor, Zenith Tech, Inc., closed the South Lakeshore Drive bridge on Monday, October 19, 2015 to commence with the $1.7 million bridge construction project.

A project to relocate the sanitary sewer line at the lakefront was completed October 9, 2015, and restoration work on the beaches will take place following the burial of the electrical, cable and telephone utility lines from the bridge to Shabbona Drive.



The bridge construction schedule is as follows:

  • Construction Commencement: October 19, 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 19, 2015. The 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 on weekdays except for daily 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 31, 2016.
