Mosquito Bridge Repair Information

The damaged timber railings will be replaced by the county bridge crew. Motorists embarking on the bridge during the closure are required to enter Highway 193 to get to Rock Creek Road to get through the detour. Drivers are highly recommended to approach the bridge at reduced speeds and additional caution in order to assure the safety of the public. The timing of the project will be kept updated through portable information signs stationed within the bridge’s proximity.
