Everyday is a Winding Bridge!

The repair and replacement of the Islands of Deer Creek bridge is now complete.

When this project was first bid out to contractors, the cost came in at close to $600,000. Through re-engineering and bringing much of the work in house, the updated price was $341,000. But thanks to diligent work by staff to work with the engineers to make modifications during the project, based on the condition of the portions that could be reused, we brought that cost down to just around $200,000. That savings helps offset overages in other areas, like Storm Drain repairs, as we continue to maintain our 50-year-old infrastructure.
