The new bridge is expected to be complete in July 2019.

The bridge, which spans the CSX tracks and Richland Creek, is located just off Harding Pike (U.S. Highway 70S). It was originally built in 1916 and is one of the oldest bridges in Davidson County.

The $2.3 million construction contract was awarded to Bell & Associates.

The contract completion date is July 31, 2019.
