Calder said the bridge is expected to be reopened on Sunday, Nov. 4, as the project is nearing completion.
On Sept. 17, INDOT awarded the contract for expedited repairs for the SR 46 Bridge over the Eel River west of Bowling Green.
George R. Harvey and Son, Inc., Danville, Ind., submitted the lowest bid, offering to complete the work for $274,033.
Construction began at the beginning of October.
Calder said the bridge is almost finished with repairs; however, there is a plan to have the bridge rehabilitated or replaced in the future.
"It is still being determined," she told The Brazil Times.
"But within the next two or three years, the bridge will have a total rehabilitation or will be replaced."
Until Nov. 4, drivers can use a detour from the bridge, which follows SR 46 to State Road 246 west to State Road 59 north and back to SR 46.
