Delaware County Enforcing Weight Embargo on Bridge Near Delaware

Delaware County has put a weight embargo on one of their bridges.

The bridge, located west of Delaware, is on 220th Avenue on the Class B portion of the road.

County Engineer Anthony Bardgett says the steel beams are too small for Special Haul Vehicles (5, 6 and 7 axle trucks) and the bridge needs to be rated for those. Bardgett says those types of trucks carry a lot of weight on a short wheel base and it has an impact on these kinds of short bridges.

The County is hoping to replace this bridge sometime in the next couple years.
