Robbins Ditch Bridge Project Moves Forward

County bridge #156 over the Robbins Ditch

Starke County Highway Superintendent, Steve Siddall told WKVI News that Bridge #156 over the Robbins Ditch at Range Road and 400 North is scheduled to go into the construction phase soon. Bids will be opened for construction work on August 4th.

Some immediacy was put on this bridge after it was closed because it is so heavily used by farmers. The fall season is a critical time for moving grain. The County Commissioners put a priority tag on #156 for this reason.

Engineering for the project is being done by Butler-Fairmont and Seufert, with Ken Minot, the representative.

Once construction begins, the bidder has 80 days to complete the work on the bridge.
