Comment Period Open For Bridge Replacement Project
Jackson County – Harding Avenue-0.34 (PID: 94479) – The project is a bridge replacement on Harding Avenue in the city of Jackson. The existing structure, which is situated over Little Salt Creek, is a single span steel truss bridge with corrugated steel floor deck on concrete and stone abutments and stone wing walls. The new structure will be a single span, composite steel beam with reinforced concrete deck on reinforced concrete integral abutments. 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. In addition, the project will not require new right of way, and no homes or businesses will be removed by the project.
