OAKLAND — The Swallow Falls Road Bridge that crosses the Youghiogheny River will be closed beginning Monday at 9 a.m. due to its continued deterioration, the Garrett County commissioners announced.
The county roads department will install a temporary bridge within the next six weeks that will accommodate loads of up to 40 tons.
The bridge is located about five miles outside Oakland. Questions can be directed to engineering director Dwight Emory at 301-334-7481 or County Administrator Monty Pagenhardt at 301-334-8970.
