Bridge damaged by flood replaced
Local children watched a 130-ton crane move the bridge deck into position. CCrews on Tuesday replaced a bridge over Alder Creek on Harris Road that was damaged by a falling tree in January 2012. Benton County bought a used bridge from Linn County to replace the span. The bridge has been closed since the winter storm; the county expects the route to open to traffic again in a month or two once work is complete.
