SEARLETOWN – A part of the approach-way to the Searletown bridge on Route 10 caved in Thursday morning, which caused a significant amount of damage.

John Raynor construction crew work to repair the bridge.
The roadway was reduced to one-lane traffic, and John Raynor construction workers are busy with the repairs.
Assistant director for Highway Construction and Capital Projects for the province, Darrell Evans, said it’s hard to tell what led to the damage.
“There was a washout behind one of the back walls.”
Evans said the last time the bridge was inspected was one to two years ago.
Construction workers expect to have it completed by this evening.
