Revitalizing a Landmark Bridge

News

A historic bridge that connects Velva to its city park is being refurbished – and its base is being shored up.
The project began just over a month ago as workers removed the bridge from where it’s been for decades, setting it off to the side.

Then, they started the process of reinforcing the foundations that support the bridge.
At the same time, crews are working on bringing back the finish of the bridge itself.
That work will continue into early June.

The head of the project says his company has done this type of work before.

(Chad Milbrath, Project Superintendent) “This is the second bridge like this that we’ve refurbished in the last two years. Being a historic bridge they want to save them and preserve them.”

Milbrath says the other similar bridge his company has refurbished is in Walhalla.
The Velva bridge should be back in place by mid-June to provide access to the park for the summer.
