“It is going to be closed to traffic, it sounds like, Monday,” said assistant Hubbard County engineer Jed Nordin. “It’ll be closed for roughly three months.

“It’s a total bridge replacement,” Nordin added.”

Redstone Construction Company received the bid at just under $800,000.

“The official detour will follow down through Dorset to Trunk Highway 34 and over to Nevis,” Nordin said. “There’s no good way around. Nothing goes through.”
