Drivers and pedestrians will have to find a new route in and out of the Uptown area starting in May.

Construction crews will close the bridge to start upgrade work on the Oxbow bridge starting May 6th.

The construction will include removal of existing railing, demolition and construction of concrete sidewalks, the bridge deck, utility vault roofs, and approach slabs, installation of the interior railing and reconstruction of approach pavement.

Detours involving South Richland Avenue will be clearly marked.

The closure could also cause delays on South Shaffer Street and West Union Street.

Construction is expected to last until Aug. 21st.
