United Consulting’s Dave Richter and Matt Lee said they worked closely with Mohr throughout the process, which completed its first phase last September. Lee inspected each bridge himself and finished the project in January.
Mohr said the summary given to him by Lee and Richter identified 28 “scour critical” bridges, four “fracture critical” bridges and three in need of rehabilitation.
Lee said his findings in Decatur County were “comparable” with the rest of the state.
Mohr was complimentary of the work completed by United Consulting.
“They’ve been a pleasure to work with,” he said. “They’ve exceeded all our expectations.”
The commissioners also turned their attention to a potentially dangerous rural intersection.
Mohr informed the commissioners a hill at the intersection of CR 600S and CR 700E obstructs the view to the south of drivers traveling west.
Mohr said a family has built a home there and is worried about safety issues concerning the hill.
Mohr and the commissioners discussed possibilities of improving the situation, but nothing was decided Monday.
