A one-and-a-half-month detour will be in place while the existing bridge is being torn down. The new bridge is expected to be constructed on an accelerated schedule. The bridge is now expected to remain closed until early November.

This project consists of the replacement of the bridge, approach work, guide rail updates, drainage work, ramp re-alignment, signal upgrades, and other construction.
