U.S. 35 Bridge Project Nearing Completion

Work on the U.S. 35 bridge is coming to a close.

Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Matt Deitchley stated that it could be next week before the bridge is open to traffic. The final surface of the roadway, lane striping and median work is left. If the weather cooperates, the opening could occur a little sooner than anticipated.

The weather was the reason why the project was pushed back from its original completion date in November.

Deitchley will notify WKVI when the crews are nearing the time when the bridge will be open. The bridge has been closed since June.
