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.
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.
