WACO – The Waco Suspension bridge will undergo partial closures this month as testing begins before a $5.5 million makeover.
The project would replace the wooden decking with a waterproof surface, repair deep cracks in the bridge towers, reinforce the anchors and replace all of the steel cables.
The renovation on the 148-year-old structure would begin early 2019.
“It ties east and west together,” Deputy City Manager Wiley Stem said.
“The bridge rehab is going to be a game-changer. We’ve kind of let it go too long. I’m really proud the council has decided to step up and fund the whole thing at once.”
