Portion of East River Road closed for weekend
A two-block portion of East River Road, between Washington Street and Front Street will be closed Friday and will be closed through the weekend, Brainerd City Engineer Jeff Hulsether said Friday.
Hulsether said a sink hole developed late Thursday and city crews did emergency borings to help address the issue. Hulsether said crews are concerned about the area around the sink hole as it is close to the railroad tracks and the sink hole developed over large cemetery sewer lines.
“We’re closing the road until we can do more investigation for safety purposes,” said Hulsether.
