FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — A bridge that was damaged by flooding during 2017 reopened Tuesday, July 2.

Brush Creek Bridge over Brush Creek on Washington County Road 60 reopened at 10 a.m. during a ribbon cutting ceremony. The bridge is about four miles west of Lake Elmdale.

It was a final flooding project out of 87 from 2017 to be completed. The foundation of the bridge had shifted.

County Judge Joseph Wood said he’s proud of the work invested to get the project completed.

Wood also said, “To come back and have road projects like this come together allows citizens to navigate to one of the greatest places in Arkansas.”
