JASPER, Tenn. - City officials have approved a bid to relocate the waterlines on both sides of the bridge on U.S. Highway 41 over the Tennessee River at Nickajack in Marion County.

The Jasper Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved a $179,660 bid from Chastain Construction Co. in Ooltewah to move the waterlines in preparation for a new bridge that will replace the current 82-year-old structure.

Gary Cosby of CTI Engineers, Inc. said the job will require about 4,000 feet of pipe to be moved.
