We apologize for any inconveniences the public has experienced during the construction of this project. Our original schedule was to have the bridge completed and open for traffic by February 10, 2014. This provided 210 calendar days (approximately 7-months) for completion. Since work began, abnormal weather conditions and utility challenges have prevailed that were outside the contractor’s immediate control. More specifically, this project experienced rain/mud days that exceeded average conditions for this area, in addition to utility relocation delays that impeded construction progress. As a result of these prevailing conditions, the project completion date has changed. The bridge is now scheduled to be open for traffic on March 28, 2014. We will make every reasonable effort to open the road before this date as long as it does not jeopardize the safety of the travelling public.
