Musick Road now open after county bridge replaced


Musick Road reopened Monday after roughly six months of being shut down for bridge replacement.

The road had been closed between Meath Drive and Lavinia Drive since October, as a county contractor removed and replaced a 70-year-old bridge over Sappington Creek.

Roughly 5,000 vehicles drive this section of Musick on a typical weekday.

The new bridge consists of two lanes, one lane in each direction, and a sidewalk with a concrete wall to protect pedestrians from passing traffic. The old bridge did not have a sidewalk.

KCI Construction performed the job under an $837,000 county contract.
