FORT HOOD, Texas — The Directorate of Public Works will host an Old Georgetown Road Bridge Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. March 22.

Maj. Gen. J.T. Thomson, III Corps deputy commanding general, will make remarks.

The $9.7M highway bridge was recently completed at “Jackson’s Crossing” where Georgetown Road crosses the Cowhouse Creek.

The 450′ bridge replaced an old condemned bridge and a low-water crossing.

The completed construction of this bridge not only improves Soldier and unit safety while training on the west side of post, it also provides an all-weather, safe route for civilian traffic traveling to and from North Fort Hood.

Media who wish to cover this event, should register here. On March 22, media should meet public affairs at the south side parking lot of Fort Hood’s Marvin Leath Visitors Center at 3 p.m.
