RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The historic bridge that crosses over the Truckee river in downtown Reno is going to be around a little longer than expected.

The Virginia Street Bridge's date with a wrecking ball has been postponed until at least late summer, maybe even into next year because of a delay in federal permitting for the Truckee River Flood Project.

Demolition and reconstruction of the bridge first built in 1905 is expected to cost $20 million. The work was scheduled to begin this spring, but city civil engineer Kerri Lanza tells the Reno Gazette-Journal they're still awaiting two necessary permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
