Structurally Deficient Bridge to Be Replaced


A Springfield bridge that has been labeled “structurally deficient” will be replaced.

 

19,000 cars a day travel over that bridge on Chatham Road north of Wabash.

 

But deterioration in the bridge structure led to that designation in a recent report by a transportation watchdog group.

 

State transportation officials insist the bridge is safe… but have now put up more than $3 million to build an entirely new bridge there.

 

The City of Springfield will contribute another $600,000 for the project.

 

Work is expected to start next month… and the project could take a year to complete.
