It is hard not to notice the continuing work on the Routes 5/20 bridge in Irving. Recently a new traffic pattern was established on the western side of the bridge, which has made the area from the bridge to the Thruway exit two lanes. The work on the bridge itself is also noticeable progressing. It is expected the bridge will be completed by the end of this year and will include moving traffic to the new bridge while the old bridge is demolished and then constructing the rest of the new bridge where the old one stood. Restoration work is expected to be held over to 2015.
