The Ashland Road is closed to through traffic due to repairs being made on a bridge just north of town. DOTD did not give an estimate of the time needed for repairs. And no alternate route is given.
The Red River Sheriff’s Office said:
Per DOTD, the bridge on Hwy 155 west of Carroll Creek Rd failed inspection today. It is now CLOSED and will remain CLOSED until further notice!
We’ve also been advised that work will not begin on the bridge until the water level goes down. If you had planned to travel along this section of Hwy 155 in the near future, you will need to find an alternate route as the bridge/road is impassible.
Here is the release from the transportation department:
