City officials say it will take a few weeks to complete repairs on the Highway 15 pedestrian bridge once construction begins on Sept. 6.

Access to the bridge has been restricted since a vehicle carrying an oversized load struck the bridge on Jul. 21.

The city has revised the completion date as the settling time wasn't initially included; repairs to the bridge should be completed within four to six weeks, weather permitting.

Under the advice of the city's engineering consultant, the bridge will remain closed to the public until the repairs are done. While the repairs are being made, traffic will be restricted to a single northbound lane in the area.
