Officials say the bridge will be closed from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday morning, so crews can remove concrete construction barriers and temporary traffic signals ahead of the summer season.

This will mark the end of this phase of the ongoing bridge construction with the fourth and final phase expected to begin in late September.
