Bridge to close for 30 days
UNION TOWNSHIP – Residents living west of 3532 Beaver Run Road will have to find a new route home from the Newark/Health area for the next 30 days.
In February, the Licking County Engineer’s Office set a five ton weight limit on the bridge at 3532 Beaver Run Road, after discovering that its I-beam support structure is deteriorating. The bridge is about one-half mile east of Gale Road. The Engineer’s Office is responsible for all bridge repairs on county and township roads.
Beaver Run Road will close at the bridge for 30 days beginning Thursday, May 8. The deteriorating I-beam structure bridge will be replaced with a very low maintenance concrete box culvert. If weather cooperates, it will take about 15 working days to complete the project.
