The construction of the 15-foot-wide utility bridge, which will also become a pedestrian bridge when complete, is tentatively scheduled to open late this summer. Once the utility bridge is completed, contractors will begin the project’s third phase, construction of the new roadway bridge on Northside.

It will have two 10-foot lanes, a 10-foot left-turn lane, a two-foot shoulder, a four-foot bike lane, a five-foot sidewalk on the western side from Wesley Drive to the bridge and a five-foot shoulder on the eastern side.

The overall project is expected to be completed in August 2021.
