Construction is now expected to begin during the week of May 7 and be complete in mid-June. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Broadford Road, SR 1031 and Narrows Road, SR 1033.

This bridge is referred to as JV-491 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
