TxDOT: Bell St. Bridge to Reopen Tuesday Afternoon
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The Bell St. bridge over U.S 67 in north San Angelo will reopen to traffic Tuesday afternoon.
According to information from the Texas Department of Transportation San Angelo District office, the Bell St. Bridge over U.S. 67 will open to traffic Tuesday afternoon.
It will be one lane going in each direction. A temporary sidewalk will also be open for pedestrians and bicycles.
As we reported in May, a big rig transporting a wind turbine tower section slammed into the bridge on Sunday, May 12, causing serious damage to the bridge. Both Bell St. and U.S. 67 were closed while engineers inspected the damage. Another big rig transporting a wind turbine tower section got stuck under loop 306 on June 5.
Reece Albert crews worked on partially demolishing the damaged sections of the bridge for the last two weeks.
TxDOT will now go out for bids to repair the bridge. Rebuilding the Bell St. bridge could take up to a year.
