Due to inclement weather, the closure of westbound span of the Hathaway Bridge (U.S. 98) in Bay County has been delayed until the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 11.
The bridge will be closed to motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic to repair joints on the bridge deck and is expected to be completed spring 2012.
All westbound traffic will be shifted to the eastbound span and will be reduced to two lanes. Eastbound traffic will also be reduced to two lanes across the bridge.
Motorists should be aware of traffic shifts and expect travel delays during the project
