Main Street at the bridge will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the bridge construction. A detour route along State Routes 154 and 148 will be used. Maple Street and Straits Road can also be used as a detour, but will not be marked. Barriers will be installed at both ends of the construction area to prevent traffic from entering the site. Access to businesses within the limits of the project will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.
The project schedule indicates that construction will start in the Winter of 2014, assuming acceptance of the project, availability of funding and receipt of any required right-of-way and environmental permits.
