As of May 2011, the Adam St bridge has been shut down to all vehicles due to deterioration of the structure and the lift pits. One sidewalk has also been shut down on the bridge. The bridge now has been left in its raised position and only 1 sidewalk remains open for pedestrian use.
It is unclear what the future of the bridge will be. There has been talk of demolishing it and having all traffic use the Exchange St or Matt Murphy Way bridges. There also has been talk of rehabilitation which would be similar to what was done with the Exchange St bridge back in the early 2000's where the bridge was dismembered, steel members were replaced/repaired as needed and the lift pits were entirely reconstructed.
