5/26/2022 UPDATE: Work continues on the Napier Avenue Bridge rehabilitation project. The bridge will be reopened to public traffic starting at approximately 8am on Friday, 5/27/2022. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The public should expect travel delays when temporary signals are in use. 

“After the Memorial Day weekend we will have to do a one-lane closure, whether it be under a temporary traffic light or a total detour of eastbound traffic, for ten hours as they [contractors] pour the new deck.”  – Kevin Stack, P.E., BCRD Interim Director


Traffic Restrictions: Napier Avenue Bridge will be reopened to one lane of traffic, in each direction, for the Memorial Day weekend.
