Pleasant Vale Road Bridge
Posted October 23, 2022, by Paul Plassman

Susan,

It appears to be closed "indefinitely" according to this Facebook post, which means it will probably stay closed until the county either has enough money to repair it or replace it....possibly years. I don't have any specific knowledge of the situation as I am not local, but the Columbia County Department of Public Works might have some answers.

This bridge is not open. Hasnít been for months. Is it closed just for repairs or closed for good? If just for repairs, is there any time frame when to expect the repairs to take place? Who can I call to find out the specifics?
