Following a series of challenges, including weather-related delays, the Bethel Church Rd. bridge replacement project has reached a successful conclusion. The newly upgraded bridge is now open to the public, providing improved safety and enhanced traffic flow for local drivers.

Initially scheduled to conclude in mid-September, the project faced setbacks during the concrete pouring phase due to heavy rainstorms. Despite these obstacles, Commissioner Director Arnone emphasized the unwavering commitment to delivering the highest quality workmanship.

The reopening date, originally set for mid-October and later rescheduled for late November, has finally arrived. The community can now rejoice as the Bethel Church Rd. bridge replacement initiative is complete, addressing structural weaknesses and incorporating essential roadway enhancements.

These upgrades, including pavement widening and elevation, aim to improve safety and traffic flow for local drivers. The transformation replaces the existing 11-foot lanes with two 12-foot lanes, providing a more efficient and secure passage.

No longer any need for lengthy detours; rejoice as everyone can now take the "abridged" route, driving the newly opened Bethel Church Rd. bridge for a shorter and smoother journey.
