daily reality will be slower-moving traffic and single-lane closures. Being prepared will aid reducing your stress while crossing the bridge. If your normal commute includes crossing the bridge during the evening, consider an alternate route that will allow you to get where you need to be safely and on time. Let’s be courteous and gracious community hosts to the construction workers. Let them know we appreciate their efforts and respect their work. It feels like we are receiving a gift to our community. We must be patient until we can unveil the fresh, new look for our iconic Caveman Bridge. In just 17 months, we will celebrate with

tremendous pride a newly-refurbished landmark. Let’s keep that treasured moment in our minds as we weather the minor daily inconveniences that come with a work zone. Use your imagination and help us start planning the celebration of our beautiful Caveman Bridge.
