LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) — A century-old central Kansas bridge that one official describes as "fun to drive" has been closed to motor vehicles.
The Salina Journal reports the McPherson County Commission voted Monday to follow state recommendations and close the Old Mill Bridge in southern Lindsborg.
The one-lane iron bridge over the Smoky Hill River was built in 1914 and is popular with people heading to a pair of small McPherson County parks. Public works engineer Justin Mader says there are other routes, but people take the bridge because it's fun.
The span will now be open only to pedestrians and bicycles, after the Kansas Department of Transportation determined it incapable of carrying a minimum load weight of 3 tons.
