Rehabilitation of the bridge on Route 965 in Worth Township, Mercer County, is underway and the bridge is now closed.

The bridge is located about a half of a mile west of Route 173 and about two and a half miles east of Route 62.

A detour is required during construction. The posted detour uses Route 173, Scrubgrass Road (Route 2014), and Springfield Church Road (Route 2007).
