County approves redesign of Maysville Road bridge

– The Allen County Commissioners approved a $33,800 agreement for design work on the Maysville Road bridge over Bullerman Ditch.

The bridge has been slated for repair for a while, County Highway Director Bill Hartman said, but officials had simply planned to repair the deck on the bridge just south of East State Boulevard.

However, the box beam structure that carries the bridge needs to be replaced, Hartman said, requiring a much more extensive project. The contract with Beam Longest & Neff will pay the firm to design a new superstructure for the bridge.

Box beam bridges can be vulnerable to corrosion when water leaks through the deck.

Hartman said construction will begin next year.
