During the bridge work, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and concrete barrier wall will be installed. Vehicles wider than 10 feet will be prohibited from crossing the bridge. Motorists should use caution in the work zone and expect changing traffic patterns.
In addition, the sidewalk on the south side of the bridge will be closed. Pedestrians will be rerouted to the north side of the bridge behind the concrete barrier wall.
Estimated completion is in mid-November.
