City officials are saying the construction on the Olive Street Bridge could begin as early as this week. The project includes replacement of the Olive Street Bridge and realignment of the roadway southwest of the bridge. Sidewalk and a pedestrian walkway on the bridge are included. The total contract amount is $215,991.70.

The project is being paid by a federal grant that covers 80 percent of the project cost. City funds will pay for the remaining 20 percent.

Olive Street will be closed at the bridge site once demolition of the existing structure begins. The contract requires that the closure be limited to no longer than 30 days.
