Traffic safety

The city is encouraging residents to drive safely and be aware of bicyclists sharing the roadway and construction crews during weekdays.

Pedestrian traffic was shifted exclusively to the sidewalk on the east bridge when construction began.

There is a live construction camera available for those who want to view traffic conditions in real time.

The speed limit has been reduced to 25 mph throughout the work zone for the safety of the public and construction team. This speed limit applies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
