Starting Monday, December 3, 2012, Bridge Avenue will be closed at River Drive for water main and storm sewer work. This work is expected to be complete by December 22.

Starting the second full week of December, both eastbound lanes will be open throughout the project. The westbound outside (north) lane will be closed to allow water system, sewer system, and intersection patching work to continue at Mississippi Avenue, Esplanade Avenue, College Avenue, and Mississippi Avenue. The work at these locations is expected to be completed by December 22nd, at which time all of River drive will be open for the winter.

Work on River Drive to complete the resurfacing of the north two lanes between Mound and Oneida is expected to resume around April 1, 2013. The work should last approximately one month.
