(BLOOMINGTON) - Travel across the Third Street bridge over State Road 37 will be restricted to one lane eastbound and one lane westbound beginning tomorrow after the morning rush hour.

Crews need the additional work space to safely pave the multi-use path, remove and reconstruct curbs, install overhead lighting and construct ADA compliant ramps.

The one lane configuration will be in place Tuesday through Saturday. If the needed work isn't completed this week, the same restriction will be in place next week.

At approximately 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 23, the Second Street Bridge will be opened to four lanes of traffic (two eastbound and two westbound) to accommodate traffic to and from the Monroe County Fair. Four lane traffic on Second Street will be in place through Saturday, July 7.

Motorists are strongly encouraged to use routes other than Third Street for east-west travel. Fullerton Pike, Tapp Road, 2nd Street (June 23-July 7), Vernal Pike and State Road 46 are available with few or no restrictions.
