Preparations are moving along for a major improvement project on the "Free Bridge" between Easton and Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
Officials are now advertising for construction bids, and they will award a contract in October.
Construction on the 125-year-old Northampton Street Bridge is set to begin this winter.
The work includes replacing both pedestrian walkways and installing new LED lighting.
Construction is expected to wrap up in spring of 2023.
