  • Thursday, June 23rd from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, inside lanes are closed

  • Wednesday, June 29th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, outside lanes are closed
  • Thursday, June 30th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, outside lanes are closed

The lane closures are necessary to allow DOTD crews to clean and remove litter and debris from the bridge.

Of course, all work will be performed, "Weather Permitting" and should inclement weather prohibit the cleaning, additional dates will be required to complete the project.

Safety Reminder

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.  Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
