Help Save Swinging Bridges
The famous Brumley Swinging Bridge was closed down early in the year after an engineer deemed it unsafe. Although eligible for a historic landmark, the cost for repairs is higher than the county is willing to pay. Locals in the area have banned together to fundraise to help save the historic landmark and fix the bridge to once again allow traffic across. Read on to learn more about the bridge and how to get involved.
The Grand Auglaize Bridge was built in 1922, is 500 feet long, and it has a span of 414 feet. It is located over Grand Auglaize Creek on Swinging Bridges Road (Lake Road 42-18) southwest of Brumley.
Closed to Traffic and Pedestrians in JanuaryEngineer Bob Lynch says county officials contacted MoDOT on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 with a concern. He explained: “Basically, these cables go into a concrete block that’s buried in the ground, and when Miller County was cleaning up the vegetation around that area, that’s when they discovered some issues with that concrete anchoring system.”
