Bid to construct new bridge awarded
The bid to construct a new bridge over Fall Creek has been awarded to Twin K. Construction of Helenwood. The company put in a bid of $687,791 for the project, the lowest of five submitted bids. The Smithville Mayor and Board of Aldermen called a special meeting Monday night to award the bid and expedite the construction of the bridge, which has been closed since October, when a Tennessee Department of Transportation Evaluation Report found it to be unsafe.
