Earth slide closes footbridge near Woodstock

The Virginia Department of Transportation closed the pedestrian bridge along Va. 609 (South Hollingsworth Road), east of Woodstock in Shenandoah County.

VDOT shut down the cable-suspension footbridge Friday morning following an earth slide next to an abutment. The bridge will remain closed while VDOT inspectors evaluate the bridge and determine whether or not it sustained any structural damage.
