Starting at 10 pm Wednesday, October 5th through 6 pm Thursday, October 6th, the contractor will close the bridge to traffic in both directions and plans to do so multiple times. Each closure could last between 5 minutes to 15 minutes. Motorists should prepare for delays when using this bridge during this time.
