A construction worker onsite said work might be done as soon as the third week in April, if all goes according to plan.
And as the one-lane bridge reopens, it will be time to close off the Truthville Bridge and work on that.
In anticipation of this work, the town is holding an informational to discuss what the transition will mean to those who use the bridge on a regular basis.
“People from the county will be there to talk about traffic, weight limits and other factors,” said Town Supervisor Matt Hicks. A several-mile detour will be in place once the Truthville Bridge is closed, but construction needed to be complete on the Lower Turnpike Bridge before this could take effect.
Hicks said representatives from Washington County will discuss the months-long work with locals who have concerns or want information about the process.
The meeting will be held on March 21 at 7 p.m. in the Granville Town Hall.
