Work on the Roosevelt Bridge is nearing completion for the season.

County officials anticipate the project to restore the historic bridge will be open to traffic before winter. The bridge spans the Cedar River on Fourth Street Southeast between Fourth Avenue and Sixth Avenue.

Previous estimates called for the project to cost about $3.6 million, with about $2.1 million federal, $800,000 from state bonds and about $800,000 local dollars.
