INDIANAPOLIS—Good news for drivers on the Indianapolis west side.

The Oliver Avenue bridge over the White River, just southwest of downtown, has reopened.

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works made the announcement Friday.

The bridge, which opened in 1925, was closed in February for a $1.1 million rehabilitation that includes a new deck and sidewalks.

A DPW spokesman says some additional work on the bridge will be done next year, but without closing travel lanes.
