While much of Monday’s Pottawatomie County Commission meeting dealt with refunding bonds on county projects and hearings for sewer, streets, and water assessments on several development projects–the group also received updates on public works projects.
What to do about the problem bridge known as SHR-21 was discussed with Commissioner Pat Weixelman asking if the county crews could temporarily shore at least one side of the bridge up. Public Works Director Peter Clark indicated that was a possibility.
Clark added the bridge, known only as SHR21, hadn’t been very high up on the priority list The estimated cost of total replacement would be about $270,000.
Commissioner Weixelman says he’s also hearing positive feedback on the speed limit reduction plans, adding the county needs to keep pushing forward on the changes.
