Council passes vote to replace Grants Mill Bridge

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham city council passed the resolution to repair the Grants Mill Road Bridge, which has been closed since 2009.

In Tuesday's meeting the council accepted the bid price of more than $1 million to replace the decaying bridge. The reopening could allow some motorists to shave nearly six miles off their commute.
