Bridge repair in the Weis Lake area will force boat traffic to come to a stop next Wednesday. The Cherokee County Highway Department would like to notify the public that starting at about 7:00am on Wednesday, July 8th the bridge over Cowan Creek will be closed to all boat traffic for a period of approximately 24 hours. During that time the contractor will be placing the bridge girders for the project and has requested that all boat traffic be restricted from crossing into the work zone for safety reasons.
