A new  bridge to replace the two, one-lane bridges has been in discussion for years, and it's much-anticipated by the community. "It will be beneficial to saving lives. There have been several killed over the years," community member Keith McClendon said.

Construction on the bridge started nearly a year ago.

Community members say they just wanted to let those people building it know just how much they appreciate their work.
