LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) — Lake Havasu City officials plan to end scheduled closures of London Bridge for special events, saying they don't want to block vehicle travel between an island and the rest of the western Arizona city along the Colorado River.

Today's News-Herald reports that city officials cited safety reasons and residents' concerns over hours-long closures.

Events that have required bridge closures include the annual Line Dance on the London Bridge and Camaros on the Bridge.

Feb. 23 will be the final time the Line Dance on the London Bridge will be staged atop the bridge.
