The Washington County Fiscal Court announced that a new Maker's Mark Bridge was completed on July 24. The bridge opened for traffic on the morning of Monday, July 28.
The old bridge, which was damaged earlier in the month when an abutment fell into the creek, was torn down and replaced for approximately $52,000. $50,000 of that cost was paid for by Marion County through emergency funds.
