Bartholomew County is moving ahead with plans to repair the Possum Glory bridge.
Despite five companies showing interest initially in the project to rehabilitate the bridge, only one company submitted a bid to actually do the work. Trisler Construction of Cloverdale proposed a bid of just under $449,000 dollars for the project. County officials had estimated the work to cost around $400,000.
The bridge on County Road 1150E was closed late last year because of its poor condition. But the county decided to save money by repiaring the more than 100-year-old bridge instead of replacing it.
The Bartholomew County Commissioners took the bid under advisement at their meeting yesterday.
