 Skinner Road Bridge Deck Replacement

 The Huron County Engineer seeks comments on a Bridge Deck Replacement Project (HUR TR 106 00.62) PID 117439 on Skinner Road over the West Branch of the Huron River in New Haven Township.

The Huron County Engineer’s Office is planning on replacing the existing bridge deck on Skinner Road located between State Route 61 and Mills Road.  The single steel beam bridge was built in 1987 and the supporting steel beams have deteriorated to poor condition. Work will include replacement of the bridge deck with a new galvanized steel structure, including minor pavement and guardrail work.

The proposed project is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area of the West Branch of the Huron River.  Best management practices for sediment and erosion control will be used throughout construction to ensure that impacts to the floodplain are minimized. A No-Rise Certification has been made by a Registered Professional Engineer.

Construction is currently scheduled to begin in summer of 2023 at an estimated construction cost of $170,000 with work lasting approximately 60 days. The road will be closed during construction with a detour route posted.

Written comments concerning the proposed project may be mailed to Huron County Engineer’s Office, ATTN: Lee Tansey P.E., P.S., 150 Jefferson Street, Norwalk, Ohio 44857, by phone (419) 668-1997 or email at ltansey@huroncountyengineer.org.  Any comments must be received by September 30, 2022.

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.
