The $6.1 million project includes repairs to the concrete deck, rust protection of the steel, resurfacing the bridge deck and stripping and painting the steel on the underside of the bridge.

As work continues, motorists and the general public are advised to be cautious while traveling near the construction zone.

Final touches to the bridge renovations will continue throughout November until completion.
