POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - The 2017 flood not only impacted the entire city of Pocahontas, it also impacted one of the most important projects in the city, the construction of the Black River bridge.

As of Tuesday, exactly a year after the massive flood, crews are still working on the bridge.

Although the flood affected the bridge's construction, severe winter weather also contributed to the slow progress.

The bridge is expected to be finished some time in 2018.
