Photo by Hank Lohmeyer Though no construction start date has been announced, town officials say it will require a four-month-long closure of Jay Avenue in order to replace the one-lane bridge that spans Surface Creek.

The Jay Avenue bridge replacement project is being redesigned and a tentative construction schedule will close the road from Old Goat Trail to Will O'Way for four months, according to town staff.

The plan for a box culvert that would be constructed off-site and dropped into place spanning Surface Creek at Jay Avenue and completed by Dec. 31 has come to grief because of a six-inch diameter domestic water line that crosses the creek at that location.

The best work around for the problem is currently thought to be a change of the bridge design to a span structure that won't be completed, staff said, until next spring following the month's long road closure.

The original cost estimate of the bridge was over $100,000 higher than the present design cost estimates, staff told trustees at a work session. There is also a grant that will pay for more than half the cost.

No construction start date was announced.
