Project reaches major milestone
Over these past three months, significant strides have been made in rebuilding the Godfrey Bridge. By the end of the week, the newly poured southern half of the bridge will have cured for long enough and be ready to handle traffic.
On Tuesday, July 18, traffic shifted to the southern half as crews begin work on the northern half.
Shortly after the shift, crews began foundational and structural work along the northern half, which is expected to last into the fall. Once complete, the new bridge deck surface will be poured and cured. Crews will finish the reconstruction by installing new street lights and safety railings followed by striping in late October.
