Bridge Replacement Delayed 03 May 12

A project to replace the railroad bridge over Highway 19 just east of the City of Henderson has been delayed by a couple of years. Work is being pushed back due to a requested provision by the railroad for a longer and taller bridge than currently exists. The increased costs reportedly pose a challenge for scheduling the work. The project is now scheduled for 2014, but may be pushed back further until additional funding can be found. Officials say the current bridge is structurally sound and can go a few extra years without additional maintenance.
