The downtown Webster Street Bridge is coming down, and the road will close to traffic beginning today for the next year and a half.

A detour will take motorists to Keowee Street to Monument Avenue.

Demolition of the bridge over the Mad River will be followed by construction of a new $10.1 million bridge that will feature five lanes, wider sidewalks, sky beams, observation decks and roadway improvements at either end of the bridge.

The project is not slated to be complete until November 2017.
