APPLETON – A weight limit is in effect on an Appleton bridge because of safety concerns.

The limit is 10 tons on Olde Oneida Street. City leaders say an inspection this week found several bridge supports are deteriorating. The supports were repaired 12 years ago.

A consultant is looking into the issue now. Results from that study will help determine if permanent repairs are needed.

For now, some Valley Transit bus routes are being changed because of the weight restrictions.
