The study examined existing and projected conditions within the study area, and identified needs and objectives based on comments from the public and resource agencies and input from the study advisory committee. The study recommended short-term and long-term improvement options to meet the bridge needs and objectives. Implementation of recommended improvement options is dependent on funding availability and other system priorities statewide.
