Ouse bridge bearing replacement

Theresa Morley

The M62 Ouse Bridge will be closed overnight over several nights to undertake bearing replacement activities. This will involve a full carriageway closure due the nature of the work. As the bridge will need to be lifted, it will not be open to live traffic during the overnight closures.

The road will be opened to traffic after each overnight closure. The work will not be visible to road users as it will be done from under the bridge.

The diversions will be clearly signposted and it is the same route as previous closures, as agreed with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Diversion routes

Eastbound – leave the M62 at junction 36. Diverted traffic will follow the A614 over *Boothferry Bridge, turn right at the roundabout to continue on the A614 then re-join the M62 at junction 37.
