Muncie’s Jackson Street Bridge closes

Muncie’s Jackson Street Bridge is now closed until July of 2012 and the 11,000 cars that use the bridge will need to find a new way to cross the White River.  Road crews will completely demolish the existing bridge and build a new one in its place — for a cost of $3.1 million.  Delaware County officials say 80 percent of that will be reimbursed by the federal government.  Officials suggest using the nearby Washington Street Bridge as a detour.
