Repair work to the Central Avenue Bridge is expected to begin on Monday, April 10, 2017. Once the work is under way, the traffic pattern will be temporarily altered and on-street parking will be prohibited for the entire span of the bridge. These restrictions will remain in place for the duration of the work, expected to be 10 weeks. The bridge sidewalks will remain open and accessible, with the exception of brief closures necessary to complete the work.

The Central Avenue Bridge work includes the removal of pavement, patching the bridge's concrete deck, repairing expansion joints, and repaving the bridge.

Crews will work on one side of the bridge at a time and alternate the two travel lanes accordingly. During the work, more than 30 parking spaces on the bridge will be inaccessible, spanning the crosswalks at both ends of the bridge.

Crews will work on one side of the bridge at a time and alternate the two travel lanes accordingly. During the work, more than 30 parking spaces on the bridge will be inaccessible, spanning the crosswalks at both ends of the bridge.

For the duration of the work, more than 40 private parking spaces will be converted to public parking, including the parking lot behind Oriental Delight and 19 deeded spaces in the Orchard Street parking lot. Public parking in these spaces will be identified accordingly and only be allowed while the bridge work is under way.

While the work continues, business owners are asked to direct employees to seek parking that does not diminish available parking for their customers. The City of Dover's parking garage is an easily accessible option for downtown customers and employees.

This project is part of ongoing bridge work throughout the City of Dover. The contractor, Evroks Corporation of Winnisquam, New Hampshire, most recently completed work on the Chestnut Street Bridge.
