The Forest Service completes inspections on bridges located on National Forest System lands on a five-year rotation cycle to ensure that bridges are safe and properly maintained for visitor use. In June of 2018, a regularly scheduled bridge inspection was conducted on the Sturgeon River Trail bridges, and one was found to be unsafe for continued use and beyond reasonable repair. The Forest Service has officially closed the bridge with a scheduled removal of August 9th, 2018. As a result, the portion of the Sturgeon River Trail system located between Forest Road 279 and Junction 4 will be closed indefinitely.
