Business Route 23 bridge in Pound to close two days for bridge work
Closure will be from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesday, October 5 and Thursday, October 6

BRISTOL – In an effort to safely set new beams for the Business Route 23 bridge in Pound, the bridge will be closed two days next week.

Weather permitting, the Business Route 23 bridge in Pound will be closed from 8:30 a.m. until 5p.m. Wednesday and Thursday (October 5 and 6).

Due to the size of the beams and their proximity to overhead power lines when lifted by a crane, it was determined the best way to safely do the work was to temporarily close the bridge.

Motorists should detour around the closure using Route 23 to access Business Route 23 north and south of Pound.
