A stretch of Hubbard County Road 18 will close for 90 days on Monday while a structurally deficient bridge outside of Nevis is replaced.

“It is going to be closed to traffic, it sounds like, Monday,” said assistant Hubbard County engineer Jed Nordin. “It’ll be closed for roughly three months.

“It’s a total bridge replacement,” Nordin added.”

Redstone Construction Company received the bid at just under $800,000.

“The official detour will follow down through Dorset to Trunk Highway 34 and over to Nevis,” Nordin said. “There’s no good way around. Nothing goes through.”
