County Route 4, Van Hoesen Road, Bridge to be Closed to All Traffic Effective Wednesday, December 18

Effective Wednesday, Dec. 18, the County Route 4, Van Hoesen Road, bridge will be closed to all traffic. The determination to close the bridge to traffic, which is slated for replacement in 2020, came after an inspection by the state and county.

County officials are disappointed the bridge, which carries CR 4 over rail lines, was caused to be closed. The bridge was replaced in the mid-1990s, and deterioration of the bridge increased in recent years.

Announcement on detours will be made in the coming days.
