The Harford Road detour was implemented successfully on November 19, 2018 — with traffic being re-routed on nearby city roadways. Since the closure of the bridge, light poles and guide rails have been removed along with other necessary structures. Recently, the contractor has begun to install a sandbag diversion within Herring Run to assist with constructing the proposed piers and abutments. Utilities located inside the old bridge (including water main and electricity lines) have been re-routed or removed to allow for the old bridge to be demolished. The next significant activity for the project is the removal of the old bridge, which will take approximately one month.
