The engineer’s office shut down the Gaysport Bridge for the next three weeks, however they will briefly reopen it for the July 4th weekend.

"We’re going to do this one here and have it open for the Fourth of July weekend so that people can get back and forth to the businesses on the 60 side and be able to enjoy their holiday weekend," says Tim Snelling, work crewman.

Officials say crews started work Monday to repair the bridge deck. The work should be completed by July 9th, weather permitting.
