To minimize the overall impact to motorists, the contractor is currently planning several brief work zones at each bridge between late June through mid-September.  The final phases of work includes bridge painting which will be completed next year between late Spring and early Summer 2024. During these time periods, flaggers will direct motorists through the one-lane work zones.  A 10-foot width restriction will be in place while work zones are active. Crews will be present during daylight hours, Monday through Friday.

Six phases are included in the scope of rehabilitation work.  The contractor currently plans to complete a single phase on all bridges before progressing to the next phase of work.  All traffic impacts can be found on the Traveler Information Map at .

All work is weather permitting, and schedules are subject to change. All work is scheduled to be completed by the end of August 2024.

A list and interactive map of all 25 bridges can be found on the projects webpage at

Capital Paving and Construction, LLC was awarded the contract earlier this year in the amount of $2,212,656.
