Bridge Replacement Project to Start in Auburn

Auburn – Crews will be replacing parts of the Auburn-Oakdale Bridge on Route 202 in Auburn beginning on Wednesday, May 20th.

As the bridge deck and beams are being replaced to make for a wider structure, motorists will encounter a change in the traffic pattern.

Traffic heading south on Washington Street out of Auburn will be detoured over Washington Street northbound at Philomar Street and routed back to Washington Street southbound by way of Chasse Street. Slight delays are expected.

Businesses in the vicinity of the bridge will remain open and accessible.

It is anticipated all work will be completed by the end of October, 2015.

Wyman & Simpson, Inc. of Richmond will perform this $1.7 million project.
