I have had a number of people reach out to me regarding the status of the Blanch Avenue bridge. The is a multi-phase project. The financials have been secured and the engineers are currently in the planning stage which includes gathering all necessary permits. I am very hopeful that the construction phase will start in the spring. I will keep you up to date with any major changes to the project that could cause a delay in the start of construction.
