A $1.1 million project to rebuild a bridge near Greenwood Park Mall will be done before the uptick in holiday traffic begins.

Crews have been working on the Madison Avenue bridge, just south of County Line Road, since March. They are on track to finish the work in mid-September due to not facing any weather delays and will be at or just below the budget set for the project.

An average of 14,500 vehicles use that road daily. The goal was to finish the work before the holiday shopping season began.

The structure was built as two separate bridges, meaning workers have reduced traffic to one lane in each direction but have not had to close the road, county highway department director Luke Mastin said.

The only issue workers have faced is motorists who don’t slow down through the construction zone, which is common at most work sites, Mastin said.
