The Spearfish City Council is moving forward with the design plan for a replacement of Acorn Ridge Road Bridge, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The bridge was originally built in the 1930s and has been on the replacement list for numerous years.
The City of Spearfish plans to replace the bridge through the South Dakota Department of Transportation’s Bridge Improvement Program. The state will provide 80 percent of the cost to replace the bridge. HDR Engineering will develop a design for the new bridge at a cost of approximately $81,500. Construction on the project is slated to begin later this year and completed in 2018.
