Quaker Farm Road Bridge Closure

A recent inspection of the twin corrugated metal
pipes that form the structural component of the
bridge over the brook on Quaker Farm Road between
Lambtown and Haley Roads have failed. The bottoms
of the twin pipes have deteriorated allowing the top
of the pipes that support the roadway to drop,
causing a separation of the pipes from the roadway.

The Department can't guarantee that any type of
traffic can pass over the brook in a safe manner,
thus I am closing the bridge immediately. Concrete
barriers will be placed at the intersections of
Haley Road and Quaker Farm Road and Lambtown Road
and Quaker Farm Road to prevent vehicles from using
this bridge. The area will have advanced warning
signs.

The Department is reviewing the options that are
available to address this situation.

Police, Board of Education and Emergency Dispatch
have been informed.
