Comment Period Open For Highland-753 Bridge Project
Highland County – HIG-753-16.75 (PID: 87214) – The proposed project is to rehabilitate an existing structure over Opossum Creek on state Route 753 in Madison Township. The rehabilitation includes the replacement of the timber deck and the steel beams; the project also includes new approach slabs and the replacement of the existing guardrail. As the project will be conducted within the existing ODOT right of way, no new right of way will be needed, and no homes or businesses will be removed as a result of the project. Some small trees and bushes will be removed as part of the roadway reconstruction portion of the project; however, none of the trees have habitat for the federally endangered Indiana Bat.
