The final phase of the Elm St. bridge reconstruction project begins Monday, July 6. This phase is expected to last approximately two weeks with the bridge opening to all traffic on or about July 20.
During these last weeks, Gibbons Rd. will be open in one direction from Alex Rd. to Elm St. Elm St. will be closed at Gibbons heading south. All local traffic will have access to their homes and businesses.
The bridge has been expanded from 23 feet to 78 feet in order to meet federal flood plain protec¬tion requirements. There will be several final touches surrounding the completed bridge that will occur during the remainder of July but, traffic will not be affected.
