Russell Street Bridge to be shut down for paving

(MISSOULA)- Commuters who use the Russell Street Bridge will need to use alternate routes for a couple of days this week. 

The aging bridge over the Clark Fork River in Missoula is set to be replaced over the next couple of years. However, the bridge needs to remain in service and that means it needs some attention for continued use.

Starting Tuesday morning, and lasting in Wednesday, the bridge will be closed to all traffic so crews can repave the bridge. Montana Department of Transportation says the work will help smooth the rough deck of the bridge and give it enough life to last until the bridge is replaced.
