Short Creek Bridge opens after year-long closure

BOAZ, Ala. (WHNT) – A bridge connecting southern DeKalb County to Boaz is open for the first time in a year.

According to the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), the new bridge over Short Creek on Alabama Route 168 in Marshall County reopened this week. The bridge underwent a total reconstruction which began in November 2021.

Traffic between Boaz and the community of Kilpatrick was redirected for the $3.5 million project.

The bridge was reopened to drivers and all barricades removed just after 2 p.m. on Tuesday November 22.

ALDOT says that although the bridge is now open, it is still a construction zone – watch out for workers and potential lane closures while minor fixes are completed.
