Crews are currently building temporary traffic crossovers on each end of the bridge and stabilizing the westbound lanes to allow traffic on the westbound lanes of the bridge.

Eastbound lanes will remain closed.

Traffic will be restricted to a single lane in each direction on the westbound lanes over the bridge.

The bridge was closed to traffic on Wednesday, March 17, due to damage from an ice jam in the main channel and erosion to the overflow bridge.
