Each department regional director is authorized to close any bridge subject to this Part which, if in his opinion, based upon inspection or otherwise, if not closed, may constitute a threat to the public health, safety or welfare. When such a closure is required, the regional director shall document the reasons for the closure and transmit such documentation to the bridge owner.
