ccording to the Forestville Road Bridge replacement project manager, the new bridge will open later tonight once the striping operations are completed.
Striping operations have been slowed due to a problem with the striping equipment. Crews are currently painting the stripes by hand. As a result, the work may not be completed until 7 p.m. or later.
Work began in early July to replace the bridge that spans Smith Creek.
The new three-lane bridge includes a sidewalk on the Heritage High School or western side of the structure, as well as a pedestrian underpass to accommodate users wishing to access the Smith Creek and Sanford Creek Greenways.
