Comment Period Available For Highland-138 Bridge Project
Highland County – HIG-138-27.24 (PID: 87333) – The proposed project is to rehabilitate the bridge over Rattlesnake Creek that is situated between County Road 85 (Cope Road) and Township Road 356A (Rowe Road) on state Route 138 in Highland County. The rehabilitation includes the installation of new, continuous welded girder composite with a reinforced concrete deck, modification of the existing concrete abutment, new approach slabs and guardrail replacement.
Some small trees and bushes will be removed as part of the project; however, none of the trees have habitat for the federally endangered Indiana Bat. No new right of way will be required, and no homes, businesses or structures will be removed as part of the project.
