BENSON – The Zack’s Mill Road Bridge over the Pole Branch north of Benson has reopened. The road was closed in April 2020 so the old bridge could be torn down and a new one built.
The old bridge was constructed in 1957 and had been deemed functionally obsolete and structurally deficient. The bridge also had vehicle weight limits.
The new bridge was built to modern standards and is also wider. It was completed on time by the contractor and opened to traffic on Monday, Aug. 24th.
