Arlington: Drug awareness event postponed

The Arlington Drug Awareness Coalition has decided to postpone the Out of the Shadows community event scheduled for Wednesday due to the devastating mudslide that hit the area on Saturday.

The event has been rescheduled for April 9 at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center, located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington. The resource fair is scheduled for 6 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 7 p.m.

Bridge closed March 31-April 1

The Jim Creek bridge on Jordan Road next to River Meadows Park will be closed March 31 and April 1 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for construction work. Work to widen the one-lane bridge to two lanes stopped last year when fall weather set in. Once work on the bridge approaches and paving is completed, the bridge will be opened to two-lane traffic, which, depending on the weather, may happen by the end of April. Jordan Road south of the bridge is accessible from Granite Falls, the north part from Arlington. During closures, drivers can take Burn Road between Arlington and Granite Falls.
