Final details of the Sylvester Bridge construction are being completed this week – the attenuator “crash barriers” have been installed, traffic and fog lines have been painted, and on Tuesday (April 10), the bridge painting is taking place!
Clean up and replanting under the bridge is scheduled to take place on or about May 15th, weather permitting.
