Jewett St. back to normal in White Springs

Jasper — Jewett Street in White Springs, which was completely washed out thanks to Tropical Storm Debby in June, 2012, has finally been repaired.

“We appreciate the patience demonstrated by residents of the neighborhood affected by the bridge wash-out and repair,” said White Springs Mayor Helen Miller.

Miller said town staff has conducted all work on a timely basis, but the repairs were performed and paid for through a partnership of federal, state, county and local agencies, and coordination has been challenging at times. 

“In fact, we are still waiting on some required data from a government partner, so that Town Manager Bob Farley can finalize the documentation needed to close out the project before the end of the year, and funding can be reimbursed,” said Miller.

On the up-side, Miller added, the bridge over the culvert is a big improvement over its predecessor,.

“We are hopeful it's useful life will prove longer than the previous bridge,” Miller said.
