The bridge, built in 1934 or 1935, is being replaced because it is beyond its serviceable life and has begun to heavily deteriorate, the city said.

The project is estimated to cost $231,221.20.

James Lane will be closed during the construction and detours will be marked. James Lane runs between Military Pike and Delaney Ferry Road.
