FOR YOUR INFORMATION AND SAFETY
From the City of Amory Mayor’s office:
Earlier today, the City of Amory Street Department made the decision due to citizen safety to temporarily close the bridge on Fairways Drive located in the Akia Golf Club (formerly Riverbirch Golf Club). There has been an issue with a sink hole toward the side of the bridge and given the large volumes of rain in the past few months it has become more of an issue. This morning it was reported that the sinkhole had grown in size and depth. This creates an issue of possible collapse. Mr. Humber, City of Amory Street Department Superintendent made the decision based upon safety and caution, to close the bridge for repair and/or replacement. Barricades and barriers have been placed at both entrance ways to the bridge. All residences on the back side of the course are still accessible from Old Highway 25 and all other residences are accessible from the front entrance of the golf club located on Highway 278. Further, all cart paths are accessible as are ALL parts of the golf course itself. The City of Amory will be working closely with Monroe County, Tombigbee Water Management District and other agencies to expeditiously as possible resolve this issue. Certainly this will take some time in planning and reconstruction as a problem that is not caused in a short period of time cannot always be solved in a short period of time. Thank you for your patience with this inconvenience as it is resolved in the best and fastest manner possible and we appreciate you assistance in warning others of the danger and exercising caution.
