Mettlers Road Bridge G0601 - Metters Road, located 1/2 mile north of Amwell Road and 1 mile south of Weston Road, Franklin Township, was closed this afternoon (10/23/2018 1:30PM) for emergency bridge repairs. Concrete barriers are in place on either side of the bridge, which is located between Duck Pond and Mettlers Pond. Bridge Closed signage is in place at Amwell Road and Weston Road intersections. Colonial Drive off of Mettlers Road can still be accessed from Weston Road. Due to periods of heavy rains and area flooding, water lowering efforts at Duck Pond and upstream ponds have been hampered. Dewatering efforts continue and bridge repairs will begin once water levels are able to be lowered. At this time we now estimate that bridge repairs will be completed by end of December 2018, weather permitting. REPAIRS COMPLETED, ROADWAY REOPENED (Updated 12/19/2018)
