Whites Bridge to be rebuilt

KEENE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) - A historic bridge in Ionia County that burned in July of 2013 will be rebuilt.

The Whites Bridge Historical Society posted on their Facebook page Thursday night that they have sufficient funds to rebuild the wooden bridge. They are receiving a $275,000 matching grant from the Michigan Department of Transportation and have been fundraising since the bridge was destroyed. A recent raffle raised nearly $5,000, according to the group.

The group will be concentrating on getting a design set and put out bids for construction this fall. The group hopes construction will begin in the spring of 2016.
