The Kennedy Bridge closed from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. today while crews lifted a bridge "pier," or support structure, and rested the bridge on a temporary pier. The current one will be demolished as construction installs a permanent replacement.

The full project, which began in March, addresses a variety of issues on the bridge, from a new coat of paint to keep rust at bay to the new support pier to work to a new bridge deck. Much of the $20 million-plus project will be completed before the end of 2018, with additional work officials say is relatively minor continuing for several weeks in 2019.
