The work will take place on Wednesday, June 24, from 7:00 p.m., until 5:00 a.m., on Thursday, June 25. The traffic measures are necessary to facilitate a concrete deck pour in order to replace the structurally deficient bridge. If weather requires postponement, this work will take place beginning in the evening of Thursday, June 25, and concluding in the morning of June 26.
