Crews will be replacing portions of the centerlock system to ensure smooth and reliable operation over the summer months. These repairs will require the bridge to be kept in the open position.

The bridge warning lights and bells will be disabled to minimize the impact on property owners nearby. Work is also being done in the evening to minimize the impact on downtown traffic and to maintain pedestrian access.
