Why are the lanes closed when no one is working?

The City is working alongside our engineering consultant to determine the necessary vehicle weight restrictions on the bridge during the repair project, as well as developing traffic plans to allow as much traffic as safely possible on the bridge when no work is underway. Out of an abundance of caution while these determinations and plans are being prepared, we have closed the outside lane of the southbound span to traffic until our analysis and work plans are complete. More information on changes to the traffic plan, including the potential to reopen the second lane at select times, will be released as it is confirmed.
