The recent rain has forced crews to delay a bridge replacement project.

Work was set to begin Thursday to replace the Indian Creek Bridge on Blake Bottom Road in Madison County. Crews hope to start work on the new bridge by July 22.

Once construction starts, Blake Bottom Road at the bridge will be closed to all traffic. Work is expected to take about four months to complete. Crews will double the size of the Indian Creek Bridge.

Commissioner Phil Vandiver says the new bridge will be safer and more suitable to handle the thousands of vehicles that cross the bridge daily. The estimated cost of the project is $1.7 million.
