Comment Period Available For Brown-763 Bridge Project
 
Brown County – BRO-763-1.02/0.96 (PID: 89233) The proposed project is to replace two structures on state Route 763, situated between Township Road 251 (Stringtown Road) and T.R. 350 (Lawwill Road) in Huntington Township of Brown County.  The first bridge, BRO-763-0.96, is a single span steel beam bridge with timber deck and asphalt overlay, and it will be replaced with a four-sided precast box culvert  on the same alignment. The second bridge, BRO-763-1.02, is a single span steel beam bridge, and it will be replaced with four-sided precast box culvert on a new alignment to provide better site distance.
 
The project will require approximately 0.909 acres of permanent right of way, which is located in a residential lawn, stream channel and wooded areas. Trees and shrubs will be removed as part of the project around each of the bridge structures; however, no homes or businesses will be removed by the project.
