Temporary Bridge Closures - County Roads 167 & 171

During on-going routine inspection of bridges by the County Engineer two (2) bridges have been recommended to be closed due to deterioration of the bridge components.  While imminent failure was unlikely, but with an abundance of caution and to ensure the safety of the community and travelling public, it is necessary to close both bridges.  Both closed bridges are timber structures and will be closed until necessary repairs have been made to ensure their structural integrity.  The bridge on County Road 167 has a bridge cap that is deteriorating, which must be replaced.  The bridge on County Road 171 has a deteriorating pile which will require replacement.  Additional components will be replaced or repaired on both structures during their renovation.  Maps depicting the location of each bridge is located below:
