ALBION – Keeler Construction has begun demolition of the Clarendon Street bridge in the Village of Albion.

The company has torn off some of the pavement and moved the concrete barriers on the approaches leading to the bridge.

The bridge was originally built in 1976 over the railroad tracks. It will be torn out, the highway embankments will be lowered and the street will be blocked off at a 90-degree angle at Crimson Drive. On the north side, it will also be blocked off with a turnaround spot near Childs Street.

The project is expected to take about three months.
