May 2019

MDT hired Wickens Construction, Inc. to replace the Box Elder Creek Bridge due to the deteriorating conditions of the old timber structure. Upon project completion, a new, wider two-lane bridge will be built east of the current bridge. Wickens began work in spring 2019 and is expected to continue through fall 2019. Traffic will be maintained on the current bridge until the replacement is completed. Minimal construction delays are expected; however travelers should anticipate loose gravel, infrequent lane closures, and reduced speeds of 35 mph through the construction zones. Drivers are reminded to slow down and watch for work crews and equipment.
