Berry Road Bridge Closed
The Sussex County Engineer has stated that the Berry Road Bridge has been determined by the County to be unsafe, to the point that it requires closure. As of Friday, February 15, 2013 the bridge is officially closed. While repair projects on this bridge were undertaken in the recent past several years, those repairs did not take as hoped, and the entire bridge needs to be replaced, at an estimated cost to the County of $600,000. It is going to take three to four years before this project works its way up through the already-existing backlog of county bridge repair and replacement projects scheduled on the County priority lists. The bottom line is that a vehicle will not be able to travel from Armstrong Road to Sherman Ridge Road, or vice verse, via Berry Road. If a car gets to the end of Sherman Ridge and wants to get to Armstrong, they will have to turn left onto Berry instead of right, and then turn right onto CR 628 to get to the other end of Berry, from there proceeding to Armstrong. It adds about a 3/4 mile +/- roundabout trip onto the course instead of just being able to get to Armstrong directly off Berry. The same holds true in reverse if some one on Armstrong wants to get to Sherman Ridge. A public notice with more details from the County will be posted when received.
