Motorists traveling east from Ava on Highway 76 toward Skyline should most certainly heed the warning signs because there is no bridge across Bryant Creek. The bridge has been removed and is being replaced through the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program. The work was originally scheduled to take place last fall, was later rescheduled for March, and then was moved to the summer so it would not impact Ava and Skyline school bus routes.
