Many Kansas State Parks were experiencing flooding issues, here at Cedar Bluff State Park the added moisture just helped enhance the visitor's experience.  The biggest news we had this year was the closure of our historic bridge on Highway 147 over the dam.  This has caused a lot of frustrations for locals.  The bridge was completed in 1951 with the completion of the dam.  After many repairs over the years, the bridge had finally been deemed "beyond repair".  The decision was then made to close the bridge to all traffic to ensure everyone's safety.  KDOT now has a bid in place to replace the entire bridge.  It is estimated to be done by late August.  The new bridge will not have the beautiful arches we have grown to love over the last 70 years.  But the number one concern is the safety of the many travelers that utilize the bridge.  Cedar Bluff Office will continue to keep everyone updated on the progress.
