BRIDGE PROJECT TO COST COUNTY $200,000 LESS
The Bond County Board meet Wednesday night, one day later than usual due to Tuesday’s election. The board heard a report from Bond County Highway Engineer Doug DeLong about several upcoming projects and some now being worked on around the county. DeLong said the Jamestown bridge replacement started the end of March with tree removal. He explained the county can use some matching funds from the state to lower the local cost of the project by $200,000.00., a very substantial savings to the county. The board thanked DeLong for his work in getting these funds for the Jamestown project. The Clinton/Bond County line bridge project will be opened for bid June 17 and the New Douglas bridge was recently downgraded by IDOT to a 22-ton load limit. DeLong said in time that bridge will likely need to be replaced.
The board approved the use of the courthouse lawn for two upcoming GBPA events. The first is a Mother’s Day event Saturday, May 7 called "I Remember Mama" and the second is the Summer Blast Saturday, June 11 that will include the classic car show.
