The City Council voted May 10 to award Integrated Construction and Nobility Inc. its bid to repair Murphey Candler Bridge for $241,421.31.

The pedestrian bridge has been closed to the public since November when a tree fell on it causing heavy damage.

The council has approved more than $309,000 for the construction of the new bridge and Brian Borden, director of Parks & Recreation, said the city is saving approximately $67,000 with the low bid.

Borden said he hopes the project will be completed by mid-July.
