Taylor Bridge project facing more delays as winter looms

TAYLOR, MO (WGEM) — The long-awaited replacement to a Tri-State bridge is facing another setback.

Marion County officials said the Taylor Bridge won’t be done until the spring, close to a year behind schedule.

County leaders said this delay is mainly due to flooding, as high water is still keeping crews from working on the new bridge.

Marion County Commissioners said cold weather is also expected to shut work down starting December first, so now the new goal for completion on the project is April.

Originally, the bridge was planned to be done by the end of Summer 2019.
