Bridge plans OK'd

June 15, 2013

Plans were recently approved to replace two Auglaize County bridges this year.

The bridges span Six Mile Creek on Salem-Noble Road and the Miami and Erie Canal on Deep Cut Road.

Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said they plan to do as much work as they can with county crews to save on construction costs.

He said having bridge engineers in house to develop design plans and draft drawings saves the county money on these projects, as thousands could be spent just on consulting fees without them.
