FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) - Construction is underway for a new Red River Bridge on Highway 78 in Bonham.

Representatives from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation say they are building a new bridge because the old one had structural deficiencies, though it is safe to use.

The new bridge is being built next to the old one. The highway will be realigned with the bridge.

ODOT officials say the project is not expected to cause traffic delays.

The new bridge is expected to be completed next fall.
