An update on the future of the Arsenal Street bridge in Watertown.

It's a project that could take close to two years to complete and cost about $8 million -- the funding for it would come mostly from federal money. The state is hoping to begin the overhaul in 2019. Department of Transportation officials showed City Council renderings of a temporary bridge that would allow for traffic to continue to flow while the main bridge is transformed.
