Golden Valley Rd Bridge Is Open To Traffic

The Golden Valley Rd Bridge (County Rd 66) over Bassett Creek is now open to traffic. Be alert for work in the area, as private utility companies continue working on Golden Valley Rd near the completed bridge.

The bridge is fully operational. However, a few minor construction tasks on the bridge will continue for a few weeks, like pavement striping and final cleanup. During this time, there will be some minor impacts to people driving, walking, and biking. Crews will work to keep disruptions to a minimum, whenever possible.

Crews are scheduled to place permanent striping on Golden Valley Rd in the project area Tues, Sept 4, weather permitting. Road striping will be completed under traffic, which means crews will be working alongside traffic. During this work, you will be able to travel through the corridor. However, it is important to stay alert in this area, as construction crews and equipment on the roadway will require your extra attention.

CenturyLink and CenterPoint Energy crews continue working on Golden Valley Rd near the completed bridge. Please anticipate impacts in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary.

For more information about CenterPoint Energy’s work, please visit CenterPoint Energy’s Golden Valley 2018 Belt Line Project or call 612-321-5546.
