As we posted September 24, the bridge construction at Roosevelt is set to begin Friday. This work will include overnight work. We’ve attached the notice provided by our Stakeholder Relations team and appreciate residents’ patience through this work.

Should anyone want a more specific schedule, we’ve also attached the very latest schedule we’ve received. It can be a very fascinating process to watch.

Should that schedule change, we will update this post accordingly.
