WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ohio (WTAP) - The Historic Hune Covered Bridge is being closed for travel until further notice according to the Washington County Engineer's Office.

The bridge, located off State Route 26 near Dart, Ohio, was built in 1879, and goes across the Little Muskinghum River.

Landslip activity that occurred in recent days has caused the closure.

According to the Washington County engineer, due to the water raising and lowering, the landslip could cause more damage to the bridge.

There is no timetable for construction completion on the Hune bridge.

Anyone with questions about the bridge may call the Washington County Engineer's Office at (740) 376-7430.
