MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Marshall County Commission is looking to approve nearly $130,000 in fees for preliminary work to replace double bridges.

The work includes geological engineering and surveys to acquire right of ways to build the new bridge and replace the two curvy bridges.

The project was approved by the state's a-trip program several months ago but the engineering study puts the project in motion toward completion.

County Commission Chairman James Hutcheson said it's a much needed project that will mean a lot to the people in the Asbury Community who drive the single lane bridges every day.

"After the engineering work gets done then we will go let the bridge out for bid.  Once that's let out then hopefully we can complete the bridge within twelve to eighteen months," said Hutcheson.
