Weather Delays Jefferson Bridge Opening

It will take a couple of more days to open the Jefferson Street bridge in Plymouth.

Marshall County Supervisor of County Highways Jason Peters told WKVI News that weather has delayed the completion of bridge work. The projected reopening date is now Wednesday.

Bart Trester from USI Consultants told the Marshall County Commissioners last week that the remaining items on the checklist include sidewalks and curbs. Crews also want to reseal the bridge deck to complete the project.

The Jefferson Street bridge has been closed since Oct. 9 after it was determined that the concrete slabs by the bridge were not stable and the sidewalk was not reinforced. The commissioners called this an emergency project and the bridge was closed for repairs.
