Comment Period Open For Proposed Highland-134 Project
Highland County – HIG-134-6.01 (PID: 84438) – The proposed project is a bridge rehabilitation of a structure located on state Route 134, between S.R. 138 and T.R. 406 (Rosselott Road), over North Fork White Oak Creek in Clay Township, Highland County. The project includes the replacement of the concrete deck, steel beams, abutments, approach slabs and portions of the existing piers. No new right of way will be required, and no homes, businesses or structures will be removed by the project. Some small trees and bushes will be removed as part of the project around each of the bridge structures; however, none of the trees have the habitat for the federally endangered Indiana Bat.
Additional information regarding the project, including a complete description, maps and plans sheets, is available online at http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/D09/Pages/Public-Involvement-Process.aspx. Issues the public may wish to comment on include the effect on local residents, air quality, the local economy, and historic or cultural resources.
