Riegelsberger Bridge to close for summer in Avon

AVON — The Riegelsberger Bridge, which runs near the intersection of Riegelsberger and Jaycox roads in Avon, will be closed for most of the summer, starting this week.

It will be reopened before the school year starts in August, according to City Engineer Robert Knopf.

Drivers are encouraged to use Mills and Detroit roads instead of Riegelsberger while the bridge is closed.

A city release about the shutdown did not explain why the bridge is closing.
