MARSHALL CO. â€” The company that rebuilt the 13th Road bridge a couple years ago wonâ€™t be fully paid for the project because it wasnâ€™t completed on time. The projectâ€™s original completion date was July 2011. The bridge was finally finished in November 2011.
County Highway Department Superintendent Neal Haeck explained that Jack Isom Construction in Reynolds was hired to fix up the bridge â€” which needed significant work.
â€śThe bridge was a box beam construction and it was coming apart,â€ť said Haeck. â€śIt was time to have it replaced.â€ť
