Hays County bridge set to reopen

Getting around Wimberley will be a little easier soon thanks to a new bridge.

Nearly nine months have passed since the devastating Memorial Day Weekend flood that hit Hays County. The May 2015 storm destroyed the Fischer Store Road Bridge near Wimberley after a large wall of water hit it.

The bridge was a major route for the town and since its destruction people who used the bridge have been forced to take a detour that took them out of their way by 40 to 50 miles.

Now construction on the replacement bridge is just about done, three months ahead of time.

To celebrate the bridge's reopening, there will be a public ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, February 26. it'll be at the intersection of Fischer store Road and Stone Canyon at 10 a.m.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick is expected to attend.

The bridge opened to traffic on Monday.
