Comment Period Open For Bridge Replacement Project
Lawrence County – LAW-7-5.50 (PID: 84455) – It is proposed to replace the existing three-span continuous steel girder bridge on state Route 7 over Indian Guyan Creek, approximately one-half mile north of the route’s junction with S.R. 243 in Union Township. The new bridge will be a three-span, pre-stressed concrete I-beam with concrete deck, cap-and-column piers on drilled shafts, and semi-integral abutments on existing piles. 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. The project will not require any new right of way, and no homes, businesses or structures will be removed by the project.
