The bridge deck was failing and need replacement for both public safety and to contain maintenance costs. Widening the bridge also allowed the addition of sidewalks.
* Three primary factors contributed to the cost over-runs for this project. 1) The size and type of project resulted in a low number of bids coming in higher than expected. 2) Underground utility conflicts created unanticipated challenges. 3) Extraordinary snowfall and cold temperatures in February and March 2019 caused a long delay just after work began. The final cost was $118,000 above budget.
