  • Randall Road over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks

The Bridge Rehabilitation Program is part of the county’s comprehensive maintenance program to increase the longevity of the county’s bridges by sealing, cleaning and repairing portions of these structures in order to increase longevity.

Motorists should expect delays while traveling through the work areas, consider alternate routes and expect additional commute time.

Motorists are asked to reduce their speed, watch for construction workers and vehicles entering and leaving the site and obey flaggers and traffic control devices. It is illegal to talk or text on a cell phone while driving.
