SPEARFISH, SD – The City of Spearfish has become aware of a potential structural issue at the Jorgensen Park pedestrian bridge, which has been closed until further notice until the City can assess its safety for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
“We have contacted a structural engineer to evaluate the bridge and make recommendations regarding its structural soundness,” Public Works Director Brandy Kean said. “Public safety is our priority, and we apologize for the inconvenience the bridge closure may cause.”
Pedestrian and bicycle traffic should use Hillsview Road as the closest crossing in the vicinity in the meantime.
