Oxford Valley Road bridge over U.S. 1. The bridge will remain open while the contractor repairs structural damage to the bridge. Construction on the bridge is scheduled to finish in June 2017.

On Monday, November 14, and Tuesday, November 15, crews will work from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning to install concrete barriers on the center of the bridge. Repairs will be made under three separate traffic patterns.

  • In phase one, the center of the bridge will be closed and traffic will shift to the far sides of the structure. This pattern will be in place through February 2017.
    • In phase two, all traffic will run on the south side of the structure from February through April 2017.
      • In phase three, all traffic will shift to the north side of the bridge from April through June 2017.
        • In addition, northbound and southbound U.S. 1 will be closed weeknights at the Oxford Valley Road interchange from Wednesday, November 16 through Tuesday, November 22, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM. During the road closure, U.S. 1 motorists will exit at Oxford Valley Road and then re-enter the highway at the entrance ramps at the interchange.
