Contractor set to replace Shelby County Bridge 9

A Shelby County bridge replacement, paid for in large part through a Community Crossing grant, has a contractor for the job.


County Commissioner Kevin Nigh details the bids opened Monday for the Bridge 9 replacement.



Nigh says the rising costs of construction material leaves the grant just a little short of the bid price, although that even comes under the engineer’s estimate.



The bridge is located on CR 600 West between 1000 North and 1100 North.  No scheduled start date has been announced but Nigh says the contractor hopes to have it complete by the end of the year.
