Closed For Safety

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - NEWS -

This bridge on Hunter Street in Farm­ing­ton next to Creek­side Park was closed last week be­cause of safety is­sues, said Floyd Shel­ley, city pub­lic works di­rec­tor. The city had al­ready planned to re­place the bridge with larger box cul­verts and ex­tend the side­walk that runs along­side the street. Shel­ley said the ap­proaches to the bridge on both sides are dam­aged be­cause of heavy rain and are not safe, es­pe­cially for larger ve­hi­cles such as school buses. He hopes con­struc­tion to re­place the bridge can be­gin in 60 days but that de­pends on en­gi­neer­ing, the bid process and weather.
