Rutledge Falls Bridge maintenance will begin Sunday, meaning motorists will need to find an alternate route for the next several months.
The Rutledge Falls Bridge, located on Rutledge Falls Drive near the Rutledge Falls Baptist Church, will be closed starting this Sunday, Nov 24. This closure will last approximately four months.
Duck River and Bellsouth have relocated their lines near the bridge in preparation of the bridge replacement.
The construction will be on a 120-day plan with allowances for bad weather due to the time of year they are starting. The project could go for another month if weather is bad. The Highway Commission will notify the Communication Center so school buses can plan alternate routes.
