EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – Progress is being made to repair a deteriorating bridge in East Liverpool.

WKBN first reported on the problem with the Elizabeth Street Bridge in 2017. It needed to be replaced and was causing headaches for drivers and ambulance services.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation’s website, construction on it started last summer and cost around $2.4 million.

ODOT’s website originally said it was expected to be finished by July 31, but ODOT now says it will be finished by September 23.

The contractor is currently working on installing rebar to prepare to pour the concrete bridge deck in the coming weeks, according to ODOT.
