OXFORD – Plans to begin work on replacing the historic Oxford truss bridge have been pushed back for two years. Work is now scheduled to begin in 2009.
The delay is due to the fact that the Oxford bridge, the surrounding area and even the “Oxford Crossing” itself are considered historical landmarks. “Additional precautions are being taken to preserve their significant community and historical value,” said Oxford Mayor Terry Stark.
“The engineering firm has narrowed down the choices, and there will be a public informational meeting at 7 tonight at the Oxford Fire Station,” said Public Works Director Randy Gibbon.
