After a routine inspection, an Allen County bridge is immediately closed down by the engineer's office.

The Wentz Road bridge, just west of State Route 65 is now closed. Allen County Engineer Brion Rhodes says they were forced to close it Wednesday(3/7/18) as it posed a danger to the traveling public. The bridge was built in 1965 and has been on their radar for years. It has seen several load restrictions in the past several years, and this year's inspection showed signs of continued deterioration. Rhodes now says they will look for funding to replace the bridge.
