Basin Road will be closed Friday for repairs from 6 a.m. until noon.
Then on Monday, the road and bridge will be closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., due to pavement work.
Basin road bridge reconstruction has been underway since last year.
Silverbow Construction’s Larry Gamez says after Monday’s work is done, the project will end for the tourist season.
“We got some pavement to do right there at the beginning of the bridge, and once we get over with the tourist season we’re going to bet back up there October 2nd and then we’ll go ahead and finish it up,” Gamez says.
He says the Basin Road bridge project is about 75 percent complete.
