Lane closures like this one will be in effect during the daytime hours next week.

It is the time of the year that the annual river bridge inspections take place.  This year it will go from June 1 through June 4, weather permitting.  This year schedule will be:

  • June 1 and 2: westbound right lane from 09:00 to 15:00
  • June 3 and 4: eastbound right lane from 08:00 to 15:00

The 45 MPH speed limit will be in place and enforced.  Expect delays start at 255 for westbound traffic, Lilac for eastbound traffic.

The evening peak today did not go smoothly thanks to an incident this afternoon:

This was cleared in 30 minutes but set the tone for the entire evening. There will be two other incidents before things would return to normal: one near Lilac and a westbound one on the bridge.
