The project consists of:
- Replacing existing superstructure with a new precast reinforced concrete slab

- The substructure will be patched and repaired as needed
- The roadway width at the bridge will be increased to 34-feet curb-to-curb to meet highway design standards.
DOT Project No. 0084-0110 was awarded to Dayton Construction Company, Inc. at a cost of $575,941.00 on October 26, 2018 and is scheduled to be completed July 20, 2018.
