Tired of those bumps on the Douglas Bridge? So are we! Those bumps are the expansion joints in the bridge and are very important, but they have worn out over time. We smoothed them during construction this past summer, but the joints need more TLC moving forward. So DOT&PF is planning a project to replace all four expansion joints in their entirety rather than continuing to try and rehabilitate them. The end result will be a permanent fix so you can drive across the bridge smoothly for years to come.
We appreciate your patience while we work to make this happen!

The goal of this one-season construction project is to:
This project will work to improve and resurface a portion of the Douglas Highway from Egan Drive to Nome Street, including the roundabout and bridge surface.
Throughout the project there will be periods that traffic will be stop controlled. Detours will be in place and Secon will work to accommodate all road users. Traffic conditions will be updated weekly, here on the schedule page.
As a reminder to use caution when traveling in work zones. Please watch for and follow direction from construction signs and flaggers when present throughout the construction zone.
It will be necessary for construction to close the sidewalk and bicycle lanes along Douglas Highway to perform resurfacing work. When this occurs there will be alternative access through the construction zone for non-motorized users.
Yes, driving lanes during and after construction will be wide enough for all vehicles that use the road presently.
When completed the project will not affect the configuration of the road.
