Project Purpose:

The purpose of this project is to correct the structural deficiencies associated with the existing S-152 (Manning Ave.) Bridge over CSX formerly SCL Railroad to meet current design standards. In an effort to expedite the time frame of the project and reduce construction impacts at this site, this will require closing the bridge and detouring traffic. Proposed detour information can also be found on the project's website.

**Structurally deficient status does not mean the bridge is currently unsafe for vehicle traffic**
