The Adams County Highway Department announces that a bridge will be closed tomorrow, January 16, 2014, due to extensive beam deterioration.
The bridge is located approximately 4.75 miles northeast of Ursa (1.75 miles west of Marcelline) on the North Bottom Road (East 500th Street) across Bear Creek.
The Illinois Department of Transportation requires the bridge to be closed until the necessary repairs are made to either stabilize or replace the deteriorated beam.
At this time, repair and/or replacement options are being evaluated but there is no timeframe for reopening of the bridge.
Traffic using the Bottom Road should seek alternate routes. The Meyer Elevator can be reached by using Co Hwy 41 (North 2850th) west out of Lima, IL.
