  1. Bri … FYI, this community lost a young man to a tragic accident. There is an active investigation so perhaps investigators were responsible for this closure. It may well be the community is coming together to honour this young man and I would think that you could dig deep and find a smidge of compassion for those who have endured an incredible loss.
