The agency is working on a second RFP for emergency bridge design that will be distributed to potential partners by Aug. 23. Cheshire Bridge Road has been closed indefinitely between Woodland and Faulkner roads. Google Maps, Waze, and other road mapping services have been notified to offer alternatives around the closure.
