Taylor Road was reopened at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, after being closed since Dec. 3, 2018 due to a water main break.

The water main break eroded the ground under the bridge and roadway. Because it is a county road, the city and county worked together to repair damage to the infrastructure.  Reports from engineers to the city revealed structural surprises at every part of repairing the bridge, which was built in 1964. 

Despite the challenges, workers were able to complete the repair and reopen the road three days earlier than anticipated.

Traffic was moving smoothly along the road by 5:00 p.m.
