Bridge Replacement Project in Selma Progressing Ahead of Schedule


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A major bridge replacement project that closed off through traffic on one of Selma's busiest streets -- could be finishing up sooner than expected.

The project to replace the Valley Creek bridge on Dallas Avenue is moving along faster than expected.
Construction officials say the project got underway in July and was expected to take a year to complete.

"The weather's been cooperating good for us, everything is good for us and we may be a little ahead of schedule," said Danny Henderson with Newell & Bush Construction.

Henderson says the project is already at the halfway point and could finish ahead of schedule. He says at the current pace the project could be finished by the end of January.

"I'm real pleased with the progress being made here and I know our citizens will be once its all completed," said Mayor George Evans.
