The new bridge will replace the existing swing-span bridge with a modern two-lane, fixed-span, high-rise bridge. It will also be built on a new location, just north of the existing bridge.

Built in 1960, the Lindsay C. Warren Bridge has been rated “structurally deficient.” This does not imply that the bridge is unsafe. It means the bridge is reaching the end of its useful life and must be monitored, inspected and maintained.
