    To prevent more road closures and bring the 40-year-old structure up to today’s standard, the OC Public Works Department is starting the process to replace the bridge. Over the next few months, county officials will hear from the community on how the new structure s

That seemingly gave a green light to the resumption of sales since that same list was key to a previous no-selling interpretation of Gov.
