County Line bridge re-opens

Your re-routing around the Allen-Hardin County Line Road south of U.S. 30, (Hog Creek bridge on Hardin County Road 15 west of Ada) is no longer necessary.

The bridge is now open. However, the county is developing a plan to alleviate flooding on the road and intends to raise the road and then repave County Road 15  this fall. That will close the bridge again.
