Ed Hand bridge closing Monday

Posted by wlpo on April 17, 2016

If you use Ed Hand Highway Bridge, it’s up for replacement and its closure starts Monday.  According to Larry Kinzer, County Engineer, the Ed Hand bridge on County Highway 23, northeast of Oglesby, will be closed for replacement the rest of the year.

Kinzer’s release says it should be completed sometime in early 2017.   Public access to the Vermillion River will be ONLY from Lehigh Park.  There will be no access from the bridge’s north side.  A detour will not be posted. Motorists will have to use an alternative route.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
