Jupiter Construction has finally completed the construction of the Timbo River Bridge between River Cess and Grand Bassa Counties. But will not be commissioned until August 15, 2019, according to Floyd Thomas, Jupiter Construction’s Chief Executive Officer.
Commuters travelling through River Cess to reach the southeast have received assurance from the company constructing the Timbo River Bridge that the bridge will be commissioned by July 26, 2019.
River Cess residents are feeling the economic pinch caused by the cutting off of the county’s connection with Grand Bassa.
The detour bridge meant to be used as an alternative route to cross the Timbo River was washed away on Saturday night as a result of heavy rains, cutting off the major connection to the southeast.
On Monday February 18, 2019 Napoleon Davis of Jupiter Construction announced that the Ministry of Public Works had instructed his company to close the bridge to the public. The announcement comes even though a planned detour is not yet completed by the Ministry of Public Works.
Jupiter construction, the company responsible for the replacement of the 43-year-old Timbo River Bridge, has resumed work after a five-month hiatus.
The site supervisor of the company constructing the Timbo River Bridge, Napoleon Davis, has announced the temporary closure of the Timbo River Bridge.
