The Route 651 bridge replacement was completed May 22, 2015, and came in under budget. The project involved demolishing the existing concrete-slab bridge, built in 1933, which was structurally deficient and substandard in width. 

The bridge was replaced with a new concrete structure that is 55 feet long and 30 feet wide. It features four-foot paved shoulders for use by pedestrians and bicyclists and architectural treatments on the bridge railings.

Route 651 carries 1,064 vehicles per day, according to a 2010 traffic count.
