The Harford County Department of Public Works announced the Hess Road Bridge over the Little Gunpowder Falls in the Monkton area is closed to traffic daily through Thursday, March 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The closures began Tuesday morning along one of the commuter routes from northwestern Harford County to points west and south in Baltimore County.

The bridge closures will allow for testing of the substructure to evaluate the abutments' condition, according to a county news release.

Motorists who normally travel this route should make other arrangements during the period of the bridge closure, the county said.
