Haschel’s Bridge to Close Sept. 30

Haschel’s Bridge in Pulaski County will soon be closed, according to highway superintendent Mark Fox. He said the bridge closure will be effective on or around Sept. 30, and then the crews have 60 days to complete the work. Fox explained they will mill two inches off the top of the deck, which he said is riddled with surface holes, and then work will be done on the abutments on the end of the bridge.

Fox said this work shouldn’t take more than two months and a detour is in place utilizing State Road 14 and County Road 200 East to circumvent the bridge.

The project is funded entirely with local funds, Fox explained, and the bridge will soon be repaired and reopened.
