Carroll County residents who live on County Road 104 or have to travel the road and have been detoured by the closing of a bridge can now breathe a sigh of relief. Supervisor Terry Brown said a $400,000 bond has been approved to fix bridge 160 on County Road 104.
He said the bridge has been closed for a year and many have had to go around but with the bond money, the bridge can now be repaired. Because it’s a $400,000 project, it will have to be advertised and bid out.
But, Brown said once all that has taken place, work on the bridge will begin as soon as possible.
“I want to thank Rep. Karl Oliver for all the hard work that he put in and Rep. Kevin Horan for the part he played in securing the funding for this bridge,” Brown said.
He said the $400,000 is solely for the bridge and cannot be used for anything else.
Also, Brown said milling and overlay work will begin on James Street, Montgomery Lane and the county part of Mill Drive. He said each road is a separate project and will also have to go through the bidding process, but work will also begin on them as soon as possible.
