Residents in northeast Lauderdale County say they're unhappy with the progress on a bridge on Antioch Road.
Jerry Gordon said residents were told repairs would take 6 to 8 weeks. Then, three and a half months later, he says the bridge still isn't finished and the work so far has not been well done.
"My question is why did they take the mud out of the ditch and put it on top of the bridge. I can't understand that. It's tax dollars wasted," said Gordon.
"The mud made it sink. No one could get through," said Perressa Ramsey. "They had friends and neighbors pulling each other out as we tried to travel across this bridge."
County engineer Neal Carson declined an on-camera interview, but said over the phone that the contractor must finish his part of the project first, before the county can do repaving. Carson said rainy weather has interfered with the contractor's timetable.
