The lane restriction is to allow a detailed inspection of the bridge. The inspection team will include the use of climbers and a Snooper Truck to examine the bridge structure.
 
Motorists can expect to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers from about 8:30 a.m., CDT, to about 4:30 p.m., weather permitting.
 
Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and inspection personnel are on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow.
