Construction on the Washington Street Bridge has been delayed. The original plan was for the bridge to be renovated and completed in 2021, but now city staff is estimating construction will be done in 2022.

“The utility coordination, the design, and the land acquisition all has to come together before we could put it out for bid,” said Bill Novack, the Director of Transportation, Engineering and Development for the City of Naperville. “It’s probably going to take two years. We’re really hopefully we can get out to bid early next year, and get half of the bridge built in 2021. And then complete the utility relocation over the winter and do the second half of the bridge in 2022. But, if any of those pieces fall behind, then it slides our schedule back even further.”
