The “Ninemile Slide” Bridge, on Old Hwy 10 W, has been posted with a maximum weight of 5 Tons. This will significantly impact FRFD’s ability to quickly and safely respond to the Ninemile area. We are working to identify options to help mitigate the impacts and will update with any new developments.
