Fishing Creek Bridge update

The State Highway Administration (SHA) has confirmed that both southbound and northbound lanes are open for traffic. North bound traffic is running on the new bridge and south bound traffic will run on the old bridge for up to 2 more weeks. After this time period, both southbound and northbound traffic will run on the new bridge. Once all traffic is running on the new bridge, please expect the west side south bound sidewalk to be closed. SHA expects to operate under one lane intermittently during the next few weeks, but not for extended periods of time.
