SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A new design for the Sutliff Bridge is complete.

On Feb. 24, VJ Engineering told the Johnson County Board of Supervisors the reconstruction of the Sutliff Bridge is scheduled to start Sept. 1 and be completed in fall 2012.

State and federal funds will pay for the $1.7 million project.

To keep the original appearance of the bridge, the new design is similiar to what it looked like before being damaged in the 2008 flood.

Spanning the Cedar River, the 113-year-old Sutliff Bridge is on of the longest and oldest Parker steel-truss bridges in the state.
