Washed-out bridge removed from Mores Creek

IDAHO CITY - An old miners bridge that was swept away by flood waters in Mores Creek last spring has been removed.

The bridge, which had not been in use for some time, became dislodged during the ice break up in March. This after Mores Creek reached record high flows.

Boise County Emergency Management posted two photos of Mores Creek on their Facebook page on Wednesday: One with the bridge and one after it had been lifted out of the water.

Officials expressed concern that if the bridge was not removed it could become a hazard, with debris accumulating behind it and possibly causing a washout on nearby Highway 21.  

A crew came out Wednesday morning and removed what was left of the bridge out of the creek.
