ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Department of Transportation is meeting Monday afternoon to discuss how endangered mussels discovered under the Broad Avenue Bridge might hold up construction to repair the closed bridge.
The meeting began around 3:15PM between DOT engineers and the group of contracted environmental divers who discovered the mussels last week.
They found threatened Purple Bank Climbing Mussels less than 20 feet from one of the bridge's footings.
Deterioration on those footings forced the DOT to close the bridge in February.
We'll have more information on today's meeting tonight at eleven.
