It may be the middle of July before Huntington's 17th Street West Bridge reopens.
The Nick Joe Rahall Bridge was closed May 29 for routine maintenance.
Contractors are asking the Ohio Department of Transportation for more time to make repairs to the bridge.
They were given until July 3 to finish, but contractors say complications are forcing them to ask for more time.
The problem involves the bridge over County Road 1. They say it was more deteriorated than first thought.
Contractors are requesting a new finish date of July 15, which means the bridge would be closed for the July 4 holiday.
The Ohio Department of Highways will make a decision either Thursday or Friday on whether to allow the extension.
