MISSOULA — A milestone is about to be marked as the replacement of a downtown Missoula bridge continues.

Construction on the west side of the Higgins Avenue Bridge has finished and traffic will be swapped to the newly finished side of the span over the weekend.

State transportation officials note that once the traffic is moved over, the new shared-use walkway will be open to pedestrians and cyclists.

Pedestrian detours will remain in place at 4th and Front streets while the east side of the bridge is taken down.
