Drivers taking U.S. 17/S.R. 404 North Thursday will get shifted onto the new alignment of the Back River Bridge.
This is scheduled from one to six Thursday evening, weather permitting.
Drivers are encouraged to leave earlier than usual and expect delays. Officials ask that commuters drive slower in the work zone for the safety of work crews and fellow drivers.
Once northbound traffic is shifted, all U.S. 17 traffic will remain on the new Back River replacement bridge and removal of the old bridge will begin soon.
