What's being done?

Be alert to the following construction activities, which may affect routine lake traffic, marinas and the surrounding community through August 2014:

  • Construction of retaining wall continues
  • Construction of bridge abutments continues
  • Work continues on all four piers of the new bridge, creating the need for boat traffic to pay close attention to workers and to slow their speed when traveling through the work zone
  • Structural Steel Installation continues
  • Routinely, traffic will be held while large materials are delivered and concrete operations are ongoing.



Construction of the Route 670 Avens bridge will provide a safe, modern bridge for motorists.
