Testing will occur in May and June to help develop plans to widen and repair the bridge. A hole will be drilled into the southeast corner of the bridge the first weekend in June to examine soil quality, requiring the closure of the sidewalk. Shortly after, river users will see a barge next to the bridge. From the barge crews will analyze the riverbed to help determine the best way to increase the bridge’s weight capacity. This testing will not affect recreational activities on the Clearwater River.
