After the Labor Day holiday, the lane closures will last longer, but no lane will be closed between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays.

Work to preserve the bridge will require one of two lanes to be closed at a time, so portable traffic signals at the ends of the bridge will direct traffic. Drivers should plan ahead and remain alert in this area.

This work is scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2022.
