BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Maintenance work is slated to be done this month on the Memorial Bridge over the Missouri River between Bismarck and Mandan.

The state Transportation Department says work is slated to begin Monday and will continue until the end of June.

The agency says work on the 2,369-foot bridge will take place during the daytime hours. The four lanes of bridge will be reduced to a single lane at various times during the maintenance and speeds will be reduced.

The $60 million bridge opened to traffic in 2008. It replaced the 86-year-old Liberty Memorial Bridge that was the first on the river designed for automobiles.

The new bridge has a military theme and displays.
