Grant OK'd for guardrail

October 31, 2013

Reinhart

A $160,000 grant is to be used to install 4,600 feet of guardrail along county roadways.
The federal gasoling tax grant filtered through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is considered a safety project, requiring no matching funds.
“Approximately half of this will replace existing rail that is in excess of 30 years old, with many rotten wood posts, at the wrong height, and doesn’t have a secondary steel backup member that is a standard for rail installations today,” Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said.
He said the remaining 50 percent of guardrail being installed through the grant would extend and fill in gaps between existing guardrail.
For more information about the guardrail grant, see the Thursday, Oct. 31 edition of the Wapakoneta Daily News.
