Bridge to be saved, Grant approved for covered bridge

Washington County - Washington County Engineer Roger Wright said rot has set in on the structural members holding the bridge up. Work to repair it will be complex and require craftsmen with specialized skills, he said.

A month ago, he said, a grant application to the federal government was approved, and the work will probably be scheduled in the 2020 fiscal year.

“We were able to get rather good funding,” he said. The federal government through two programs will pay 95 percent of the cost, which Wright estimated to be between $700,000 and $750,000.

But the high number of small “snow events,” each requiring salt, plus the high number of days when temperatures fell below freezing and rose above freezing in a single day, took a toll on salt supplies, as well as the condition of pavement. 


Infrastructure projects seek $11M in state funding for 2019

YOUNGSTOWN - Mahoning and Trumbull counties and several municipalities are competing for more than $11 million in Ohio Public Works Commission grant and loan funding for infrastructure projects in 2019.
