Start Date: Late May/Early June 2015

Estimated Completion: July 2015

Cost: $115,000

Cart Drive Bridge Replacement

Completion: May 2014

Estimated Cost: $430,000

Description: After the old wooden pilings and concrete abutments detiorated, the project addressed the structural integrity of the bridge. The bridge was replaced with a precast "Con Span" style culvert system and associated storm drainage connections. The bridge spans Halfway Branch Creek, which drains areas reaching to just north of Highway 29 (East Main Street). The creek flows in a southerly direction and is a major tributary to Lawson's Fork Creek and is vital to the functionality of the drainage basin. Cart Drive is a critical connector route from Fernwood-Glendale Road to Webber Road.
