Stimulus bridge project begins

Email News Alerts

A bridge project over the Schoolcraft River in northern Hubbard County is progressing despite periodic torrential rains.

"We can pretty much resume as soon as the rain stops," said Hubbard County inspector Les Anderson. "So far we've only lost a little over a day on the project."


That tune will change in about 10 days when workers begin pouring concrete for the bridge deck on the County Road 9 structure.

Crews hope for sunny weather.
