FORT HOOD – Soldiers and drivers on Fort Hood now have a safer route with the construction of a new bridge.
The new Old Georgetown Rd. Bridge is officially open.
The approximately $10 million bridge was designed to replace low water crossings across Cowhouse Creek that now runs beneath it.
The 450-foot long bridge can support up to 100 tons and is also equipped with steam gauges that allow officials to monitor water levels and provide early warnings in case of a flood or flash flood situation.
Fort Hood's Old Georgetown Bridge is the second to replace a low water crossing.
The next one is expected to be built on Turkey Run Road.
