County Brief


Valley County Commissioners would like it to be known that the Milk River Bridge south of Nashua will be getting the deck replaced this summer. Early indications show that the project should take 10 weeks and traffic will be limited to a single lane.

During the construction, commissioners warn that the bridge may cause problems with transporting heavy machinery. They also expect that delays of 10 to 15 minutes may occur while the maintenance takes place. The site will have stop lights and flaggers present to assist in directing traffic.

Commissioners pointed out that completing maintenance now minimizes the risk of big cost later on down the road. The project will cost much less to complete maintenance to it than it would to repair damages that could be caused later on if it were allowed to fall into disrepair.

The project is anticipated to begin sometime this May and more details regarding the project will be available in the coming weeks.
