Drivers will encounter delays Monday as the Aerial Lift Bridge receives some fresh paint.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane, alternating directions, starting at 9 a.m. Work is expected to be completed by that evening, but could continue Tuesday if necessary.

The touch-up work is the final component of a $296,000 project replacing parts of the iconic bridge’s aging deck.
