County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure officials issued a statement reporting that work would begin on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016.

“The bridges are in poor condition due to the superstructure defects that resulted in the bridges being categorized as structurally deficient,” officials told the news agency.

The contractor for the $2.8 million project is Montana Construction Inc. of Lodi. Officials told the news agency that the rehabbed single-span, concrete box beam bridges will be supported on footings with arch façades, much like the original structures, and will have two through lanes.

Depending on the weather, the project is expected to be finished in approximately five months.
