Cottage Grove’s Swinging Bridge is moving towards completion. As of Friday, Aug. 2, 15 cubic yards of concrete was poured on each side of the bridge, amounting to 30 cubic yards in total. The concrete will aid in ensuring the bridge can support heavier loads and will cure over several days from Aug. 5 to Aug. 8. Steel columns are scheduled to be installed early September and the entire project is set to be completed in early November.
"It's going to start coming together," said Cottage Grove Civil Engineer Ryan Sisson.
