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

The east sidewalk is closed for the duration of the project. ​

You may hear loud noises as we periodically encourage birds to leave the work area.
