After 3 days of heavy rain, the people of the Right Bank woke up on the morning of July 11th to the disheartening news that the new concrete bridge, a “Self-Help Project” by the people of Clay Ashland, that was currently under construction, had washed away.
The bridge was approximately 65% complete. The Rainy Season of 2022 has been characterized by torrential rain that has left many areas in Montserrado flooded.
The rain has been so heavy in Liberia, that some are describing the rainfall as biblical. What ever the case, the people of Clay Ashland, Millsburg and Arthington, find themselves back to square one, having no bridge and no easy way to access their homes.
