After and inspection of the W. Valley Green Bridge today, County Engineers determined the bridge must be closed to traffic as of this afternoon for an indefinite period of time.
The detour route will be posted in the next 2 days. The County will be evaluating options to make repairs in order to re-open the bridge, but I would anticipate it will be closed for some time. COUNTY PRESS RELEASE ON BRIDGE CLOSURE
