Bridge In Ripon Closed

The bridge on Tygert Street between Scott and Jackson Streets in Ripon is closed due to its condition. City Administrator Lori Rich says their City Engineer discovered the problem earlier this week. He saw a crack in the road and took a look at the bridge and did not like what he say so he put up traffic cones to keep people from using the bridge until they could get a structural engineer out to take a look at it. She says the bridge is over a century old. She says the bridge will remain closed until they can get more information from a structural engineer about whether it can be salvaged or has to be replaced.  Ripon Police Department photo.
