Motorists can once again use Alabama 168 to travel over Short Creek near Boaz. 

The Alabama Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the new bridge, located about 3 miles east of U.S. 431, was open after a year of work to demolish and replace the old bridge. 

The roadway between Boaz and Kilpatrick reopened shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday, ALDOT said, though motorists are warned that the area remains a construction zone and workers may be present at times.

Lane closures are also possible for completing "minor work items" still remaining in the project, which cost about $3.5 million, according to ALDOT.
