The Highway 98 westbound travel lanes between Brooks Bridge and Perry Avenue will be shifted to the inside of the roadway onto temporary travel lanes, beginning the evening of Wednesday, March 6.

  • This configuration will be in place to allow crews to construct the new westbound Brooks Bridge structure.

Four U.S. 98 travel lanes (two eastbound and two westbound) will remain open throughout the construction.

This work is part of the $171 million Brooks Bridge Replacement Project that includes constructing two new, parallel bridges that will increase capacity to six travel lanes from the current four-lane bridge that opened in 1966. Project completion is estimated for summer 2027.
