The existing bridge will be removed in phases as the new bridge is constructed in tandem. The $25 million project includes interchange ramp improvements, lighting upgrades, new asphalt paving, retaining walls, concrete shoulder improvements and construction of a railroad tunnel structure under I-70. This project will complete in January 2017.
