Two Afton bridges in need of repair

Two Afton bridges are deemed structurally deficient.

Diane Hankee, Afton's city engineer, told City Council members Feb. 21 that a bridge on Valley Creek Trail and one on Trading Post Trail received the designations and require repairs. She said the costs could add up to $40,000.

The issue will be heard at the next Afton Public Works Committee meeting.
