Parson Road bridge restricted to one lane over Little Beaver Creek

Balm Grove – The bridge on Parson Road over Little Beaver Creek has been restricted to one lane of traffic, according to Washington County Land Use and Transportation (LUT) after the department discovered erosion behind one of the bridge supports.

“We’ve seen a substantial loss of material behind one of the bridge end supports,” said Todd Watkins, Washington County Land LUT Operations and Maintenance interim manager. “This is a rural road with low traffic volumes. We’re reducing traffic to one lane to shift traffic away from the damaged portion of the bridge.”

Crews will continue to monitor the bridge on a weekly basis until repairs can be made, which are expected this summer.
