County Road 15 bridge rehabilitation in process


In late March, The Icon visited the bridge project that crosses Hog Creek on Hardin County Road 15, west of Ada. Here’s a one month progress report.

The bridge is closed until mid-June while undergoing rehabilitation, according to the Hardin County engineer’s office.

The project, estimated at $220,314, includes work handled by the county and U.S. Bridge of Cambridge. A portion of the cost is covered by a grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission. The U.S. Bridge portion of the project is estimated at $170,314 and the county's share is $50,000.

The removed bridge beams, are in Cambridge, Ohio, undergoing rehabilitation where they will be galvanized. Once they are returned and replaced, the county will reinstall a concrete deck.

In conjunction with the bridge rehabilitation, the county is developing a plan to alleviate flooding of the road at the bridge.

The county hopes to raise the road and then repave County Road 15 from State Route 309 to the county line at County Road 10. This project is slated for the fall.
