Work has begun to replace a bridge on Route 48 in Elizabeth Twp., and delays are possible in the area, said a district spokesman for the state Department of Transportation.

Frank Gavlik & Sons, Inc. is the prime contractor on the project to replace a bridge that carries the highway over Boston Run in the Mt. Vernon section of the township. The project is expected to cost $804,000.

Minor restrictions with flaggers will occur during the first two weeks of the project while crews conduct shoulder work, the spokesman said. Once bridge replacement work begins, traffic will be restricted to a single, alternating lane, controlled by traffic signals.

The new bridge is expected to be complete in August.
