The county said stop signs will be used to control traffic where the road becomes a single lane. Drivers are urged to use caution in the area.
It was discovered during an annual inspection Friday that a section of stone abutment had washed away due to recent storms, making the lane of the bridge potentially structurally deficient, according to the county.
There's currently no timetable when the road will completely reopen.
