The Elmore County Commission through its Highway Department is actively working to repair a sinkhole that developed on the western abutment of the county bridge on Redland Rd between US 231 and Rifle Range Rd. Repair work began hours after the initial notification of the problem by a nearby resident of Redland Rd. Through swift response by local volunteer fire department, Wetumpka PD, Elmore County Sheriff, and Elmore County Highway Department personnel, no damages or injuries resulted from the storm related problem.
Highway department crews plan to work through the evening and weekend in an attempt to reopen the roadway prior to Monday morning rush hour traffic.
While emergency repairs are being made, the public is encouraged to utilize Jasmine Hill Rd and Willow Springs Rd to detour the damaged area. The Elmore County Commission appreciates the public’s patience why these emergency repairs are completed.
