Black River Bridge is almost complete

BLACK ROCK, AR (KAIT) - The Black River Bridge at Black Rock is nearing completion with the deck of the bridge complete.

Resident Engineer at the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Shannon Luke said the only work left to do is to finish the concrete barriers on the side and paint the bridge.

"The bridge will open, we hope by May the 18th, weather permitting," Luke said.

Luke said when the bridge opens it will only be 2 lanes until the work being done to expand to four lanes in Portia is done, then all of the bridge lanes will be opened.
