Parson Road to close August 21 to 25 for bridge repair

Balm Grove – Parson Road between Timmerman Road and Balm Grove Loop will be closed from August 21 through August 25 as crews repair the bridge over Little Beaver Creek. The bridge had been reduced to one lane of traffic in late April after Washington County Land Use and Transportation (LUT) crews discovered significant erosion behind one of the bridge end supports.

According to Todd Watkins, Washington County Land LUT Operations and Maintenance interim manager, the bridge sees little enough traffic that it was safe to reduce the bridge to one lane to shift vehicles away from the damaged section of the bridge while repairs were scheduled.
