The Buddy Phillips Bridge over the New River on Hwy. 17 in Jacksonville opened to traffic Thursday.

The work was scheduled to be finished Monday but took a few days longer.

The project took three years to complete and cost almost $12 million dollars.

The old bridge was considered one of the worst in our state, according to AAA Carolinas.
