The first phase of the reconstructed Mount Vernon Highway bridge is now complete, reaching a new Transform 285/400 Project milestone. Now construction crews have moved onto preparation for the second phase, resulting in a traffic shift on Mount Vernon Highway bridge over SR 400 from Barfield Road to Crestline Parkway.
Once the project is finished, Mount Vernon Highway bridge will have more lanes to accommodate eastbound and westbound travel, a new median, and wider sidewalks.
