Spencerville Bridge set to Re-Open

Spencerville, Ind. – (WOWO):  Spencerville’s historic coverage bridge been repaired. Last September a semi plowed through the bridge ripping down support beams and other parts of the structure.  The 140-year-old bridge has sparked a local festival and over the last decade or so drew widespread support to keep it open, rather than replace with a modern bridge. Since that time, a new span  was built just south of the wooden bridge. DeKalb County highway officials say the bridge still needs to pass final inspection, but its all but good to go.
