Nearly one week after damaging floods in northern Mercer County, one township is looking for ways to repair the damage.

The West Salem Township Board of Supervisors met Tuesday morning and declared a disaster emergency.

According to a statement issued by the supervisors, the purpose of the declaration is to address the safety and emergency concerns due to storm damage from Wednesday, June 5.

Two township-owned bridges were heavily damaged and washed out on South Barry Road. South Barry Road remains closed indefinitely until the bridges can be replaced, according to supervisors.
