Hirsch Creek Bridge restricted to single lane traffic

The district is restricting the bridge traffic to legal highway loads only

The Hirsch Creek Bridge between Forest Ave. and the Cable Car Subdivision is restricted to a single lane alternating pattern at this time.

On June 9, the bridge was damaged by a motor vehicle and authorities are presently conducting a structural assessment of the bridge to ensure public safety.

Additionally, the district is restricting the bridge traffic to legal highway loads only, meaning no oversized loads can cross the bridge at this time.

The district will provide more updates when more information is available.
