A bridge is out in the 1000 block of Saline River Road and the road will be closed until mid November. Ellis County Public Works told Hays Post that crews found a bridge that was structurally unsound and needed to be closed off.
The wooden timber bridge’s stringers were broken, and it was determined the bridge was impassable. It is unclear at this time what caused the bridge to become damaged.
Materials needed to make the repairs will need to be ordered in, so the closure will be at least a couple of weeks.
Crews have set up barricades to keep out the traveling public.
