 The Huron County Engineer Seeks Comments on a Bridge Replacement Project (HUR–CR 11 03.41) PID 104081 on Baseline Road over Marsh Run a tributary of Huron River in the Village of Plymouth.

The Huron County Engineer’s Office is planning on replacing a bridge on Baseline Road Township Road (TR-11) over Marsh Run waterway located on the east side of the Village of Plymouth.  The single span pony truss bridge was built in 1955 and is in poor condition. The proposed replacement will consist of prestressed concrete box beam superstructure on capped pile abutments.

Snow Plow Routes

The Huron County Engineer’s office is responsible for snow and ice control on 225 miles of county roads.  The County road system is broken into 7 or 8 plow routes depending on the severity of the storm with each route taking approximately 4 hours to complete.  These routes combined can cost up to $6,000 for labor, equipment and material to clear snow and ice.  The routes require our trucks to travel over 500 miles, use 150 gallons of fuel and spread 240,000lbs of a salt/grit mixture.  We have 10 plow trucks at the ready and are staffed to be able to plow 24 hours a day 7 days a week!  The map below shows the Huron County Engineer’s Office plow routes.  All other roads not in color are the responsibility of other entities; Ohio Department of Transportation, Cities, Villages and Townships.
