Span opens ahead of schedule
NEW CONCORD, Ohio--Some good news for area motorists, and residents of the New Concord area....Friday afternoon, ODOT reopened the SR 83 bridge.
The span, on the south edge of New Concord was closed in the spring for a complete renovation, and was reopened ahead of schedule.
However, the wooden Liberty Street bridge remains closed to traffic.
That bridge was closed in mid July after the Muskingum Co Engineer deemed the bridge unsafe. No word on when or if repairs will take place.
