The Texas Department of Transportation is expected to start demolition and reconstruction of an existing bridge structure on County Road 447 beginning Feb. 6.
The bridge is located approximately 1.4 miles north of the intersection of County Road 447 and Farm-to-Market Road 1296, northwest of Waelder. SEFBO Pipeline Bridge Inc. of Austin was awarded the contract at a cost of $195,000.
Construction is expected to take about four months to complete and all dates are subject to permissible weather and could require adjustment, TxDOT officials said. CR 447 will be closed at the structure to through traffic, with only local traffic allowed to access the road.
