The bridge will remain closed through the Summer of 2019, and it is scheduled to reopen on or before the first day of the new 2019-2020 school year.The remaining portion of Gold Mine Road will be closed on the last day of the 2018-2019 school year. At that time, access to Chandlee Mill Road will be altered and traffic will follow a different detour plan.
