Broad Ave. Bridge demolition stalled by weather

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Recent heavy rain has stalled demolition of the old Broad Avenue Bridge in downtown Albany.

The construction company, PCL, was supposed to have the demolition work finished by February 15th.

The Georgia Department of Transportation granted them an extension to March 15th.

If work isn't finished by then, there could be a longer delay.

Work could be forced to stop during the breeding season for an endangered species of mussel.

Construction workers have already started on some footings for the new bridge.
