Muskingum County Engineer Doug Davis says he was forced to close an area bridge Tuesday.  Davis says effective immediately, a bridge on Coopermill Road, near Wortman Road will close for emergency repairs.  Davis says he found structural issues with the bridge and closed the road to traffic as a safety precaution.  Davis says it is also likely that the bridge will have a reduced weight limit once repairs are completed.
