Chilson Bridge Closure – Old Highway 18

The Chilson Bridge on Old Highway 18 has been deemed unsafe and has therefore been closed to traffic.  With the bridge closure Old Highway 18 is no longer a through road.  Those trying to reach Rocky Ford Rd or Paradise Rd must enter from the Edgemont side.  For addresses on Old Highway 18: to access 28186 or higher enter from the Edgemont side,  to access 27953 or lower enter from the Minnekahta/Hot Springs side.

If you wish to make your voice heard about this issue the Fall River County Commissioners will be looking at proposed solutions at the next commission meeting on April 5th.
