Effective immediately, the bridge on Hwy. M in Monroe County over Sleighton Creek will be limited to a 20-ton vehicle weight. Signs will be posted on the bridge, with advance notice signs at Hwy. 71, Hwy. A and Hwy. MM.
A recent inspection of the bridge revealed deterioration and damage that limits the structure’s capacity to safely carry loads over the new limit. The 41-foot long concrete structure, constructed in 1968, is being scheduled for replacement.
For further information, contact the Monroe County Highway Department at 608-269-8740.
