A Michigan Department of Transportation inspection has deemed a bridge over Werner’s Creek, southwest of Trenary, unsafe for vehicle traffic of any kind.

The bridge is located about a mile north of the Alger-Delta county line, along Deadhorse Creek Road, roughly 4 miles west of U.S. Highway 41.

“We are working on a temporary solution; however, until such time, the bridge will remain closed,” said Pete Glover, a forest fire supervisor with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in Gwinn. “Barricades will be placed today.”

Deadhorse Creek Road is a forest road used for a variety of activities, ranging from timber hauling to an access way for hunting, fishing and other recreation opportunities.
