The Indiana Department of Transportation says a historic bridge over the Wabash River has reopened nearly four months ahead of schedule. The Lincoln Memorial Bridge, which runs between Vincennes and Westport, Illinois, underwent $3.2 million worth of renovations.
The work involved cleaning, rehabilitating pavement, sealing joints and repairing the façade of the 1930s-era structure. It was built for $2 million and designed to compliment George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in the Knox County city.
Work started in October, but was expected to take 180 days. INDOT officials say good weather and a well-managed timeline by the contractors helped the project wrap-up early and on-budget.
