Comment Period Open For Covered Bridge Restoration Project
Scioto County – SCI-TR573-Covered Bridge (PID: 93991) – The project calls for the restoration of the Otway Covered Bridge, which is situated over Scioto Brush Creek on Township Road 573 in the village of Otway. Construction will include replacing broken or deteriorated timber members, repairing the timber arches as required, replacing deteriorated floor system members, correcting horizontal and vertical alignment, installing a new roof and new siding, restoring existing stone as needed and adding fire detection and protection. 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.
