Repairs Underway on Varnedoe Bridge

We have some good news about the Sam Varnedoe bridge. The first repairs are taking place underneath the bridge so you may not see much going on at first.

The bridge has been closed since a truck driver broke through the barricades and hit the raised portion of the bridge.

Wesley Bowers, the bridge keeper, says he is looking forward to things getting back to normal. "It's going to be a while yet, but the quicker they start they quicker things will get back to normal."

The repairs will cost the Chatham County about $165,000 and are scheduled to be finished in about a month.
