Traffic Impact

​Expect intermittent single lane closures on the bridge at night.

Construction Impacts

Most of the work is happening under the bridge and should not impact traffic. We built a temporary work structure under the bridge to minimize impacts to travelers, you can see it in the left side of this image

Work is estimated to complete 2023.

Construction Activities

Work is continuing on the north end of the bridge. The last section of scaffolding is being constructed over the water near the center of the bridge.
