My bad. Wrong bridge. MODOT is replacing the honey creek bridge on Hwy 13 in the fall of 2017. This bridge will continue to live although reduced to one lane due to deficiencies in the structure. The answer as to why not fix this bridge instead of the other one remains in the strange world of the black engineering arts practiced by MODOT.

As of June 2016 there is a stop light to create single lane traffic as well as load and speed restrictions.
