The Knoxville bridge components of the Rock Island Greenway project will be set in place Thursday evening through Friday afternoon. The first 210 foot span was to be placed Thursday night at 10pm. Knoxville Avenue was being closed briefly while the bridge span was lighted and swung into place. The second span of 190 foot will be lifted into place Friday, February 28th around 1pm. Still to be completed are the paved approaches to the bridge, protective railings and retaining walls. Final completion is weather dependent, but is estimated to be in late April or mid May.
