FAQ

Cloing the bridge saves taxpayer money by allowing the contractor to work more efficiently and will result in a shorter construction period.

The proposed signed detour is over U.S. Route 36, Interstate 35 and Route 6. See the map HERE.

Based on the cost/benefit ration, building a bypass would not be a good use of taxpayer funds.

Only the purchase of two construction easements is anticipated at this time.
