The project consists of the removal and replacement of the existing precast bridge deck, including the parapets, sidewalks and roadway approaches. The traffic signals are also being upgraded as part of the work.
The work will be completed in several stages with the first stage closing the shoulders in the north and south sides of the bridge and a subsequent stage reducing travel lanes over bridge. Additional notices will be provided prior to new stages of construction.
Sidewalks will be open to pedestrian traffic during the current stage of construction. Expect lane closures Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
