Heavy rain in Chippewa County Wednesday and Thursday caused a culvert to fail under a bridge on a dead end road.
East 20 Mile Road in Keldon is closed because of a collapse of the bridge over Desormeaux Creek.
There are several houses on the west end, or the dead end, of the collapse.
We talked to people in the area Friday morning and they said that culvert was put in seven decades ago.
They all know each other and are taking it with stride.
“They know if they need to get out, they can come through my field and you know, it isn’t too bad. I’m on this side, so it’s O.K.!” said Janet Coullard, who lives on the east side of the bridge.
The road commission is working on a temporary fix until a permanent one can be built.
