Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - The west-bound lanes of the Bong Bridge are closed for a two-year construction project.

The multi-million dollar project will include repairs to the bridge deck, arch component, lighting system, installation of a roundabout, and a fresh coat of paint.

Transportation officials say motorists will need to follow posted detour routes, including directing motorists to use the Blatnik bridge, during the extended construction period.

East-bound lanes of the Bong Bridge will remain open.

The closure of the west-bound lanes will last until November 2014.
