Good News – the 8th Street Bridge Fence work is scheduled for completion, on or about, Friday September 14th.
New traffic changes will begin Friday August 17, at about 1pm -- westbound traffic will shift to the south side bridge lanes. This may give you the feeling that you’re traveling abroad (driving on the “wrong” side of the road) while you cross the bridges. Along with the traffic shift, the southern sidewalks will open to pedestrians while the northern sidewalks will close.
The Bridges remain open to only westbound traffic with detours for eastbound traffic.
Remember to slow down and obey the 20 mph speed limit through the work zone.
Please support our local 8th Street businesses, they are staying open throughout the project.
Thank you for your continued patience. Please note that as with all projects - dates may change, and work may be extended depending on weather, progress and conditions.
