Mill Pond Bridge Undergoing Renovations in Ozark

The Mill Pond Bridge is receiving much needed reconstruction in a very strange way.

Construction crews spent Thursday morning lifted the structure off of the Finley River, moving it to a nearby road to be restored.

Officials say the 100-year-old bridge has been damaged due to repeated flooding, more traffic and heavier cars traveling across it.

The repairs include reinforcing the bridge, repainting it, among others.

City officials believe the construction will allow for the bridge to be continually used for years to come without risk to those using it.

The restoration is expected to take several months to complete.
