  • New bridge dedication to be held Thursday

     

    All that was left of the Blue Bridge Monday afternoon was a large pile of twisted steel resting beside the road on the south side of the Salt River.

    Crews have completed the destruction of the bridge, constructed in 1932, as the new concrete span is now in full use.

    The new bridge will be named to honor former Spencer County Judge-Executive C.L. Glasscock during a dedication ceremony scheduled for this Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Taylorsville.
