VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Construction on a bridge replacement in Terre Haute is on hold.

The bridge is on Poplar Street over Thompson Ditch near Fruitridge Avenue.

Vigo County Engineer Neil Costello tells News 10 that construction was supposed to start on Oct. 2 but several phone lines are still attached underneath the bridge.

Costello says Frontier Communications\ was supposed to re-locate the phone lines before construction started.

As of right now Costello says Frontier is waiting on a permit from Indiana Railroad but he says he is not sure how long that could take.

News 10 will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest when information becomes available.
