Shelby County bridge to be closed Monday


August 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Shelby County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has announced the 1600th Street Bridge will be closed beginning Monday, August 6th. The bridge is located over an unnamed tributary of Pigeon Creek, just east of 208 1600th Street (near the Sylvan Kenkel residence), between Washington Townships 20 and 17. The bridge will remain closed for the next five-weeks, so that the bridge can be replaced.

Residents and emergency responders should plan now to take alternate routes. If you have any questions, call the Shelby County Engineer’s Office at 712-755-5954.
