(Columbus) A road through the town of Columbus is going to be shutdown beginning Monday for roughly two months. Wendt Road will be closed to all traffic at the bridge over the Crawfish River, a quarter mile south of Duborg Road.
Columbia County sheriff’s officials say this is necessary in order to complete the replacement of the existing bridge. Work is slated to last for 70 days or until approximately June 1st and the road will be re-opened to traffic upon completion. Authorities say no detour is being posted and motorists will need to re-route on their own.
They add that every effort is being made to minimize disruptions to traffic patterns and timing, while still being able to complete the project in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The project’s completion is dependent on weather conditions.
