FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLOSED -- BRIDGE 50524 ON CSAH 2 EAST OF THE VILLAGE OF LANSING
Lansing Township, Mower County— TODAY, BRIDGE 50524 ON CSAH 2 EAST OF THE VILLAGE OF LANSING WILL BE CLOSED TO TRAFFIC FOR A PERIOD OF TIME YET TO BE DETERMINED.
The closure, authorized by the County Board of Commissioners, is due to newly documented distress in the steel piling elements of the substructure holding up the bridge deck. Recent low water conditions in the Cedar River allowed inspectors to review the condition of the piling below the normal water line. The closure of the bridge and roadway is being implemented by County forces to allow for a more in-depth determination of what repairs are necessary and warranted to put the bridge back in service.
More information will be available once the investigation is completed. It is hoped that the bridge will be returned to service as soon as a decision becomes available and repairs can be made.
Motorists are asked to follow the temporary detour which is being established. The County thanks the public in advance for exercising patience and safe driving habits.
