The project would replace the wooden decking with a waterproof surface, repair deep cracks in the bridge towers, reinforce the anchors and replace all of the steel cables.

The renovation on the 148-year-old structure would begin early 2019.

“It ties east and west together,” Deputy City Manager Wiley Stem said. 

“The bridge rehab is going to be a game-changer. We’ve kind of let it go too long. I’m really proud the council has decided to step up and fund the whole thing at once.”​
