County to close AuSable Forks bridge Thursday

AuSABLE FORKS – The Essex County Department of Public Works will close the Grove Road Bridge on Thursday to bore soil and gather information for design of a future new bridge.

The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., but the bridge sidewalk will be open to pedestrian traffic during this time.

The Grove Road Bridge crosses the East Branch of the AuSable River just before its confluence with the West Branch in downtown AuSable Forks.
