Forest bridge closed for repairs

TAYLOR COUNTY (WAOW) -- A bridge on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail in the Northwoods is closed indefinitely for repairs, according to a release from the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Officials say the bridge is over Sailor Creek, located in the Medford Ranger District in Taylor County.

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest authorities say the bridge is not stable. The closure will remain in effect until the bridge is repaired, they say.

During repairs, a segment of the trail between Forest Road 576 north, past the bridge site, to the intersection with Forest Road 571 is closed. The trail has been rerouted along Forest Roads 576 and 571.
