BOWLING GREEN -- The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced Friday that the bridge over the Eel River west of Bowling Green on State Road 46 was officially opened at 7 p.m., Friday.
George R. Harvey and Sons, Inc., Danville, completed the expedited repairs.
The bridge will be open to traffic. However, a weight limit of 19 tons has been placed on the bridge.
Signs displaying "Weight Limit 19 Tons," are posted on both sides of the bridge and at the intersections of State Road 59 and SR 46, State Road 246 and SR 46, plus in Spencer at United States 231 and SR 46.
Construction began during the first week of October.
The bridge was closed July 31 after structural engineers retained by INDOT recommended closing the bridge after identifying more corrosion in the structural steel than was previously documented.
