The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is proposing to repair and rehabilitate the bridge on Ohio 99 at the 5.82 mile marker in Huron County.
The project involves a major rehabilitation of a concrete beam bridge over the West Branch of the Huron River in Greenfield Township. The superstructure will be placed by the installation of new composite box beams and construction of a new concrete deck.
Minor work will include the placement of dump rock along the southern pier.
Construction is anticipated to begin on April 1, 2016. The project will cause a detour from Ohio 162 east to Ohio 61 north to U.S. 20 west and reverse. Right-of-way will not be required in order to construct this project.
As part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), ODOT officials are seeking comments from the public about the social, environmental and economic impacts of the proposed project.
Environmental impacts include those associated with historical, archeological and ecological resources, hazardous materials and general concerns people may have with the project.
Written comments concerning the proposed project may be mailed to Levi Wingler, Environmental Specialist at the above address. ODOT also can be contacted by telephone at (800) 276-4188 or by email at Levi.Wingler@dot.state.oh.us. Any comments must be received by Jan. 7 to be considered.
