Work on the Empire Bridge replacement began on August 11 last year.
The project was divided into five stages, the first was the temporary support system to the original bridge and the second was the temporary bypass bridge. Stages three to five of the project, were the removal and replacement of the existing bridge and stream works.
Construction of the new bridge cost $5 million.
