Project Description

What is being done to the Telephone Bridge?

The current bridge will be demolished and replaced with a higher, longer, and wider bridge. This will increase the capacity of the channel, allowing for more flood waters to flow throughout Brays Bayou. The new bridge will feature an extended 10ft sidewalk. Construction began in Spring 2021 and is expected to be completed in Summer 2021.
