BlackJack Creek was back to a trickle under the new bridge after being out of its banks just 2 days before.
The concrete surface of the new Main Street Bridge was being poured Thursday March 20, 2008.
The freshly poured concrete had some type of white power applied to the surface which made it appear much more dry than it really was when I took these photos at about 1:30pm Thursday March 20th. -- Ted
This pavement "eating" machine continues to remove and grind up the old Main Street pavement between the new bridge and 5th Street.
Don Brinkley was out working to remove dust from his cars which are needing customers to brave the construction zone challenges. Same story for Karen's Kountry Kitchen ... and the businesses on the other side of the future bridge.
Even if the bridge were ready for traffic there is no roadway connection yet.
