State closes Old Forge Creek bridge indefinitely

State DOT Bridge inspection officials have advised the Johnson County Highway Department to close the Old Forge Creek Road Bridge just past the Nelson Chapel Baptist Church. This closing is being advised for safety concerns due to the structural damage the bridge has suffered through aging and recent storms and flooding. It is in the Federal BRZ bridge program and will be closed until the program contracts the work out for replacement. The Johnson County Highway Department will not be involved in the construction.
