The bridge spanning Swart Street in Margaretville bridge is scheduled for replacement next April, Mayor Bill Stanton confirmed this week.
The bridge has sustained damage from floods in 2004, 2006 and was again hard-hit by the historic August 28, 2011 flood. The latest flood blew a hole in the bridge just below the area that had been repaired on the southern end of the bridge.
After the latest flood, the bridge was initially set up for one-way traffic until additional damage developed and the entire structure was shut down.
