During the closure, drivers east of the bridge should use Route 20 to Route 33 (Spotswood Trail) to Route 644 (Burnley Road), which carries traffic back to Route 641. Motorists west of the bridge will reverse the detour. Driveway access will be maintained for local traffic.

The existing bridge, which was built in 1932, is posted with a 3-ton weight limit. After construction, the bridge will be open to all legal-weight vehicles.

Message boards are in place to notify the public of the closure.
