Forge Hill Road  Between Lochary Road and Old Forge Hill Road. 
This road encountered several "landslides" and has severe erosion along the ditchlines.  Unsure whether repairs will be completed by Highways crews or if it will be contracted out.  Since no homes are in the area and very low traffic volumes, for motorists safety, it made more sense to close the road for now and investigate methods of repair.  Estimated closure:  2-4 months.

Glen Cove Road - Bridge #155  Bridge located just west of 1803 Glen Cove Road.
Bridge is severely scoured under the abutments with partial failure of downstream wingwall and abutment. The County is currently planning on complete replacement, but investigating other options as well. This bridge was in good to very good condition, prior to the flood - as such, repair or replacement wasn't currently programmed in the County's long range plan. Therefore, the County will need to start from scratch with a new bridge design and permitting (about 2 years) with construction lasting about one additional year.  Estimated closure:  2 - 3 years. 
September 4, 2018  September 3, 2021 Bridge replacement
Glen Cove Road - Bridge #156 Bridge located just west of 1920 Glen Cove Road. Bridge was on the long term replacement schedule, but remained in acceptable condition.  In fact, the bridge itself appears to be relatively intact from the floods with the severe erosion to the surrounding roadbed and behind the abutments, being primarily responsible for the current closure. Since a new bridge was planned and already designed, it isn't practical to repair the existing damage if it is going to be replaced in another year or two. Therefore, the County plans to expedite the construction utilizing the current plans. Estimated closure:  12 - 18 months, dependent upon permitting.

Snake Lane - Bridge #31  Bridge located just east of 2920 Snake Lane. This bridge was already slated for replacement and the project was awarded with construction scheduled to start on September 24th.  This structure did not wash out and repairs could have potentially been completed by Highway's crews, but it would have taken several days to do and would have detracted from their other flood recovery efforts.  This did not make fiscal sense considering the structure was being closed and removed in 2-3 weeks anyway.
