Why does the project require a year-long closure and detour?

There is no economically feasible way to keep the bridge partially open while we rebuild it. The same geography that makes this bridge an essential neighborhood transportation link also makes a detour unavoidable. You can view maps of the general detour route and school detour route when the bridge will be closed during construction. Common driving trips will take 5 to 15 minutes longer during the closure, based on your origin and destination.
