The picturesque Swinging Bridge in the Village of Arroyo Grande is currently closed while city staff conducts some repairs to a small section of the structure.

Portions of a wooden plank on the Heritage Square Park side of the bridge were loose and posing a trip hazard, Arroyo Grande Community Development Director Teresa McClish said Monday.

City public works staff will remove the section and install new pressure-treated boards, she said.

Staff members closed the bridge Monday morning and hope to reopen it by the weekend. McClish didn’t immediately know the cost of the repairs.
