Saturday night, Dec. 16th, the bridge over Broad will at last, be OPEN!
Heads up @cityofmborotn … Crews are preparing to open the new bridge over Broad Street at Old Fort Parkway/Memorial Blvd! The contractor plans to have the bridge open to traffic in both directions by Saturday night, December 16. pic.twitter.com/GLPyP3sDIb

Kathryn went on to tweet that once the bridge opens there will still be plenty of work to do, so for drivers to still be mindful of road crews. The work Kathryn speaks of includes finishing signals, paving, and landscaping.
The project began back in January of 2014 and was slated to open January of 2016. A little behind schedule obviously, but as the saying goes, “better late than never…” right?
