The Bell Street bridge will be closed and traffic will be moved from the Interstate onto the frontage roads. The westbound turnaround bridge will also be closed nightly, and will reopen the following mornings.

This particular piece of the construction project will cause closures from 9pm on Friday, December 1st until 8am Sunday, December 3rd.
