Notice to Powers Community residents: Due to severe flash flooding causing damage to the bridge at Dry Swamp on Hwy. 184 near Dixie Electric Power Association, MDOT has been forced to close the bridge. This is causing response delays for Powers Fire & Rescue firefighters and emergency medical responders who live west of the bridge and for fire apparatus responding to calls west of the bridge. Please know that we are coming to your emergency calls, it just is going to take a little longer to get there until bridge repairs or bridge replacement is completed.
