Bowman road has been closed between Apple Lane and Old Airport Road with construction beginning on the Bowman Road Bridges improvement project. The closure is expected to last until next winter or until the project is completed. During construction, the bridges will not be in service and emergency vehicles will not be allowed through the site. The county is encouraging drivers to make other arrangements for their travel routes. Interstate 80 can be used as a convenient parallel detour for vehicles and a shuttle service will also be available to transport bicyclists and pedestrians around the construction site. Access to all schools, businesses and residences will remain open throughout construction.
