(KMOV.com) -- Commissioners in Franklin County are taking steps to repair a bridge that has been closed since November 2013.
Franklin County officials said they will seek bids to make emergency repairs to the Bend Road Bridge, located in eastern Franklin County.
Officials hope to award a contract in early February.
The bridge was originally closed because it was considered unsafe.
Emergency repairs will allow the 97-year-old bridge to re-open to limited traffic.
