It measures 54’ in length with two 12’ wide lanes and no sidewalk. The replacement bridge will be lengthened to approximately 87’ long with two 15’ wide lanes. There will also be a sidewalk added on the downstream side of the bridge. The construction of the replacement bridge will include a concrete deck, pre-stressed concrete bulb tee beams, semi-integral backwalls, and concrete abutments on steel piles.
