The head-banging sounds of a bridge beginning

Email

A crew from Duininck Brothers Inc. guides a crane and piling into place Wednesday. Pilings for the bridge pier were pounded into place over the Necktie River on County 39 north of Laporte. The clanging sounds of the bridge pilings could be heard for miles and the earth shook as the framework of the new county bridge was pounded into place. The bridge will cost $688,000. It is anticipated to be finished later this fall.
