The Broadway Bridge will close to all users from 11 p.m. on Wednesday, August 9 until as late as 5 a.m. on Thursday, August 10 while the drawbridge is surveyed for the Rall Wheel Replacement project. Hamilton Construction is replacing the century-old Rall wheels and tracks that help the bridge open for ships to pass.  The survey work requires several bridge openings and cannot be done when traffic is using the bridge.  Bridge users should use alternate crossings such as the Steel Bridge (for all modes) or the Fremont Bridge (motor vehicles only).
