Temporary Bridge Closure on South 5th Street & South 6th Street between Winnsboro Road and Dilling Street

Monday, April 23, 2018 - 2:30pm

WHAT: Closing bridges today 

WHEN: Monday, April 23, 2018 

WHY: Based on an inspection done late Friday evening 

WHERE: Bridges on South 5th & South 6th North of Dilling Street 

The Engineering Department learned late Friday evening that due to the recent sustained high waters, the timber piling has further deteriorated on the bridges at South 5th and South 6th St. Therefore, the bridges are being closed to all traffic today. We have a project in design to replace the existing bridges with box culverts. The project will advertise for bids this summer. The length of time for the closure has yet to be determined. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
