Construction Timetable for Repairs to Grand Avenue Bridge Delayed

DES MOINES, Iowa -- The city of Des Moines has already decided to spend millions on repairs for the Grand Avenue Bridge over the Des Moines River.

However, the work was supposed to begin sometime this month, but now the construction timetable has been pushed back to next month.

When work does begin, only one lane will be shut down at first. The new bridge could open as soon as late next year.
