     Work begins today on a $425,000 bridge repair project in Fall River County on Hwy 18 between Hot Springs and Edgemont. Prime Contractor Corr Construction Services of Hermosa is scheduled to finish the first phase by the end of July.

       The bridge is at mile marker 20.53 between Minnekahta Junction and Edgemont. Work includes removing and replacing approximately 80 to 100 feet of bridge approach slab at both ends of the project.
