After an inspection, the bridge is rated in poor condition. The planned rehabilitation project will include driving surface sealing, expansion joint replacement, partial painting, and steel structure repairs to extend the life of the bridge an additional 10 to 15 years. It is estimated to cost $18 million.
The project is scheduled to be put out for bids in early 2020, with construction starting in early spring 2020.
