Weight Limit Needed for Culvert on Merdian Road

MITCHELL - FEBRUARY 9, 2023 - The Lawrence County Redevelopment Commission continues to look for bids on the paving project and culvert repair along Merdian Road near the Lehigh Plant.

According to Brent Roberts, Butler, Fairman & Seufeart Inc. suggested that the culvert on Merdian Road will need a weight limit placed on it due to structural issues.

The Lawrence Redevelopment Commission heard about the having to secure the right of way from the City of Mitchell and Lehigh Company, survey work, and permitting for the project.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Army Corp of Engineers will be responsible for the permits on the project.

In addition, Lawrence County Commissioner Wally Branham only received one bid from Milestone on the paving of Merdian Road. Two other bids were requested from Flynn & Sons and E & B Paving that did not receive a response from the other two bidders.

The Lawrence County Redevelopment Commission will give the bidders a more detailed report and request another round of bids.
