I think Steve said the new bridge is 5 feet higher.

Edit: This link shows the new bridge is 5 feet higher.

Bridge Improvements

The bridge will be widened to include 12-foot travel lanes, six-foot shoulders and a six-foot sidewalk. It will also be built as a “perch” bridge, meaning the middle of the bridge will be higher than the ends. At its highest point, the new bridge is expected to be about five-feet higher than the previous bridge.
