A remote bridge leading to Marial Lodge on the Rogue River at Agness is closed to vehicles until further notice, the Bureau of Land Management has announced.

The Mule Creek Bridge, on forest road 32-9-14.2, is the only automobile access to the lodge. People visiting the lodge can still walk across the bridge and hike the mile to the lodge or can reach the lodge by boat.

An inspection of the bridge determined that it needed repair before vehicles could cross safely, BLM said in a news release about the closure. More inspections are planned before work begins.
