Smith County, Texas — UPDATE - A bridge is down on a cut-through road, just south of Whitehouse off of Hwy 110. County Road 2186 between Hwy 110 and Old Tyler Rd. or, CR 2138, has a small bridge down.
Smith Co. officials have blocked off the area, and are advising residents who need to get to their homes to use Old Tyler Rd. to get down CR 2186.
There are no injuries reported, and officials say they are not sure how this happened. Smith Co. tells KETK it may be the cause of a truck or heavy vehicle that crossed the bridge, and it just couldn't hold up.
Smith Co. tells KETK the bridge was recently paved and the heavy pavement could have contributed to the collapse of the bridge.
Smith Co. officials tell KETK they are not sure how long it will take to repair the bridge.
