Elm St Closed between Eastern and Mound


The Elm Street Bridge between Eastern and Jersey Ridge has been closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic pending the completion of an in-depth engineering inspection.  The bridge is owned and maintained by Canadian Pacific Railroad; however, the City has been inspecting it annually to ensure that it is safe to use.  The initial recommendation from our contracted engineering firm after their onsite inspection today was to immediately close the bridge to all traffic due to significant deterioration of the deck. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide updates when they become available.


Elm St is closed to through traffic between Eastern and Mound to investigate structural issues with the bridge at this location.  Local traffic is permitted to residents only along this stretch.  No travel is permitted across the bridge. 

It is unknown at this time when the bridge will re-open.  More information on the status of the bridge will be released as it becomes available.
