Load limit approved for Hayes St. bridge between 8th & 16th Aves., Wright Twp.

The Ottawa County Road Commission has approved posting a bridge load limit for the Hayes Street bridges between 8th and 16th avenues in Wright Township, Ottawa County.

It has been determined that in the best interest of public safety, a 25 ton load limit has been established on the Hayes Street bridge between 8th and 16th avenues in Wright Township as a result of analysis during routine bridge inspections.

Signs giving notice of the new weight limit should be installed by April 3, weather permitting. The bridge shall remain open to the traveling public, and school buses and most public safety vehicles will still be able to traverse the bridge.

Any vehicles exceeding the respective weight limit on the bridge must seek an alternate route.
