Temporary Bridge Opens On Arthur Brown Road In Walnut Hill

November 12, 2017

A temporary bridge opened Saturday over Boggy Creek on Arthur Brown Road, near the Walnut Hill Baptist Church.

Construction started on the temporary bridge in July in order to construct a new permanent bridge. However, main bridge was ordered closed in September after a state inspection found serious structural deficiencies. Work is already underway to construct the new permanent bridge over Boggy Creek, with 11-foot travel lanes, six-foot shoulders and a solid concrete barrier railing. Work is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.

    That place looks like a wreck waiting to happen.
    I do like curves but it seems like a lot of people can’t traverse through them while they’re on their phones..
