A bridge on a key route linking Huntington and Hinesburg with Interstate 89 has been closed.
Richmond Select Board member Erik Filkorn says the one-lane bridge on Bridge Street in Richmond village was found during an inspection to have deteriorated to an unsafe level.
He says it’s expected that the bridge will remain closed for three to four days while temporary repairs are made.
The bridge already had been reduced to one lane. Now it’s been closed to all but bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
