As the contractors work to finish the bridge, the Department of Transportation thanks all of you for your continued patience as we work towards completion of the Fort Avenue Bridge. Below is the anticipated timeline for the remaining work to be completed.
Currently the contractors are working on water connections and the installation of water mains on the bridge. The contractor expects to have all of the following work completed by the end of August 2012: on the south side of the bridge-driveway work, sidewalks, curbs, and fencing; and the entire bridge-the final paving, striping, and landscaping.
Please note the temporary pedestrian bridge is scheduled for removal in Mid-July.
