Harrods Creek Bridge To Re-Open Monday

City and state officials have scheduled a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Monday afternoon to re-open the Harrods Creek Bridge.The nearly century-old bridge along River Road in eastern Jefferson County was shut down in November of 2008, after a state inspector deemed it unsafe for automobile traffic.It has been largely rebuilt and widened to two lanes in a project that saw several delays.The conservation group River Fields filed suit, saying it wanted to preserve the original bridge and keep it one lane to prevent speeding in the area. The legal action was eventually dropped. Construction was also delayed by seasonal weather conditions.The bridge will be officially re-opened to traffic Monday afternoon at 3:00.
