1/30/19 – 5:05 A.M.

Hancock County is moving forward with a bridge repair project this year. The county commissioners approved a contract for more than $22,000 with the Poggemeyer Design Group of Bowling Green during a Tuesday meeting. The company will do the design work for the removal and replacement of a bridge deck over the Blanchard River on Delaware Township Road 150.

County Engineer Doug Cade says there are holes in the deck, but the structure is sound.

The estimated price to replace the bridge deck is $450,000. The state is pitching in $250,000 for the work. The county will pay the rest.
