After 10 months of construction, The bridge on University Boulevard, connecting Alberta City will open at 2pm today.
In addition to daily traffic, the bridge will be used this weekend by thousands of football fans driving into Tuscaloosa for Saturday night's Alabama--L S U game.
Work began in December 2014 on the $6.8 Million project to replace the bridge which spans 19th avenue and links east Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama Campus and the downtown area.
