This bridge was closed about 1 year ago.There is a temporay bridge that cost about $5 million for now.The headline of a Halifax Co. paper said>County to state>We need money to rebuild this bridge>Why wasn't a real bridge built instead of a temp.one? Why did Va.turn down the money from the federal Government?Any idea if this bridge will ever be built & when?How many $$$ to tear down the disposable bridge? john church
