Rimrock Road Bridge Set to Open Soon
Officials expect the Rimrock Road Bridge in Hamilton Township to be completed next week. Ever since the closure of the bridge local motorist have had to rely on detours which business officials feel has been hurting them, so they anticipate business to increase. The bridge has been closed since July and has been delayed because of an unexpected issue with the old bridge support system being in the way. Rory McGlasson from Eastern Region Rapid Bridge Replacement Project says, "Each one of these was eight feet in diameter right where the pile was driving to the new bridges center support was supposed to be." "It's a pretty huge structure that went about forty feet into the ground that hadn't shown up on our pre-construction survey." Officials say the project should be done by the end of next week.
