The Lenawee County Road Commission will be shutting down the bridge on Crockett Highway south of Gorman Road until it can be replaced.
The Hoagland Highway bridge north of Laberdee Road is permanently closed.
Grant Emery of the LCRC said engineers were out Sunday inspecting critical bridges in the wake of flooding caused by Friday and Saturday rains in the area. The Hoagland Highway bridge is washed out. The Crockett bridge is unsafe, he said.
A logjam was impeding flow of water at the U.S. 223 bridge in Blissfield Sunday and MDOT has been called in to consult on the situation, however the bridge is not closed and traffic was flowing smoothly Sunday afternoon.

Debris built up at the site of a logjam in the River Raisin at the U.S. 223 bridge. Around the county, both Hoagland Highway bridge and the bridge on Crockett Highway were to be closed Sunday by the Lenawee County Road Commission, with the Hoagland bridge washed out in the River Raisin flooding.
