The projects are bridge repairs and are scheduled to start June 1 and be completed by August 24. The contractor at this time is planning on working 12-hour shifts Mondays through Thursdays. It sounds like there will be some serious width restrictions.

Depending on where they are at in construction, they may be able to accommodate getting some wide loads through, but you would have to work with the contractor/ITD. Here are some contact numbers:
