VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A stretch of roadway in Vigo County remains closed and it looks to stay that way, at least for right now.

The stretch is on Riley Road and the closed portion runs from Moyer Drive to the roundabout at the 641 Bypass.
 
The Vigo County Highway Department blames the closure on bridge structural issues.

County Commissioner Brad Anderson was on site Friday and said the county will be getting recommendations from a bridge company they work with on how to fix the problem.

At this time we do not know when the stretch of road will be open.
