The improvements to the bridge consisted primarily of the construction of a dual northbound to westbound left turn lane on CR 111. This required the stabilization and connection of the existing bridge span over I-495 and the reconstruction of the LIE westbound on ramp to provide for a dual left turn off of CR 111. In addition, related roadway improvements were made on CR 111 between the South Service Road and North Service Road, including traffic signal modifications, pedestrian facilities, new pavement markings and signage. All of the improvements were performed within the existing right-of-way.
