TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - April 1st will mark the new beginning for an important piece of the Clinton community. The Clinton River Bridge will finally go under construction. It's a 50-year-old bridge. 

Tuesday, News 10 went see how bad the bridge actually was. When we got there, we saw drivers swerving back and forth to avoid hitting pop holes. While we were there, we also say construction crews starting to prep for the big day.

 We spoke to a few people. Ben Jackson says he remembers when the first bridge collapsed in 1961. He is ready to see constructions start on the new bridge. He also believes people shouldn't be in a hurry while it is under construction. 

The bridge won't be closed off completely. There will be one lane that is open for traffic to get through. This may cause an inconvenience to some drivers. 

The bridge is expected to be under construction until the middle of November. That's according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.
