It is SO exciting to have the 43rd avenue bridge back open! This will be so helpful for our bus routes. Thank you to ALL who worked so hard to get this built! #Bexceptional #BetterTogether
Shout out to the Reno County Public Works Department for putting in extra hours to get the bridge ready to open tomorrow (and way ahead of schedule). It is 8:15 pm and they were putting the finishing touches on it! At 9:00 tomorrow morning, we will send a bus to officially open it! And as a bonus on my bike ride, I got to talk to a previous student and Buhler grad who was working on it this late. Thanks, Matt Wilcox, for being game to take a pic! #bexceptional
