Preliminary work on the North 11th Street Bridge, behind the big Riggs, started today.   The old wooden cross-tie  bridge was torn down in 1992 and replaced with the current concrete bridge.  In those days, an official with CSX explained that CSX would build another cross-tie bridge and maintain it or it would build a concrete bridge and the City would maintain it.  the City opted for the concrete bridge that lasted about 26-years.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/18/2018-1:30PM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
