A project that has been underway for more than 6 years is nearing completion, as Harrison County Bridge 51 is set to open by the end of October.

Bridge 51, on Amsterdam Road, Harrison Co. Rd. 51, was built in 1938. Due to the bridge’s dilapidated state it was closed and the former bridge was torn down.

County Engineer Doug Bachman said that the newly built bridge is nearly complete at Wednesday’s meeting of the Harrison County Board of Commissioners.
