City of Hatfield completes bridge replacement

The town of Hatfield has just completed a bridge replacement on Buddy Bean Drive. The small bridge built in the 1930’s was structurally weak and had been damaged by an automobile accident in recent years. The town received a Community Development Block Grant through the Arkansas Economic Development Commission in the amount of $100,000 to replace the old bridge with a 10x12 box culvert. The work was done by D&S Poultry Contractors, LLC out of Waldron. The engineer for the project was Engineering Services, Inc. from Springdale. Hatfield Mayor Linda Denton expressed thanks to the community for their patience while the street was closed to traffic during construction. The town is working on another grant to resurface the remainder of Buddy Bean Drive in the future.
