Project Description

The Bluffton Road bridge project consists of the superstructure replacement due to a load limit rating of 12 tons. The project consists of concrete support beam replacement and a new bridge deck with wide separated paths for pedestrians and bicyclists on both North and South sides of the bridge. The project also includes new decorative lighting, overlook nodes, and an improved intersection of Broadway and Bluffton. This is a federally funded project.

Construction is expected to begin either in late 2024 or early 2025.
