MACEDONIA, Ohio — Ledge Road in Macedonia remained closed between North Freeway and South Freeway Monday.

The police department said a rock fell from the crumbling bridge and hit the windshield of a vehicle below.

An alert on the closure was sent Saturday.

“Yes, it’s an inconvenience but how can the city in good conscience open it up?” the police department reasoned on its Facebook page.

A view from under the bridge showed severe deterioration.

The Macedonia Police Department posted pictures but said the view didn’t show the extent of the damage.

Some places the holes go back more than a foot and a half,” the Facebook post said.

The closure was expected to remain in effect until further notice.
