There are now plans out to replace the "Hulton Bridge" between Harmar and Oakmont.

There is a rendering of what the new bridge will look like here.

The new bridge will be 4 lanes across unlike the current bridge which is only two lanes wide.

ARMOURERERIC:
Though I am always a fan of increased capacity, do the appraoches, either current or future ever warrant 4 lanes.

Since bridges are natural bottlenecks, as long as you widen to the first major intersection the capacity won't be wasted.

Mr_Northside:
Yeah... either ends of the bridge can have a lane act as a turn lane.  In this case, especially the signal @ Freeport Rd.  Instead of one long single-lane line of traffic turning either left or right @ the end of the bridge, 2 shorter lines can do both at the same time.

Plan for Palmer airport connector gets update

I'd be surprised to see any dirt turn for any of this in this decade.
