Design work begins on historic bridge project

The Clermont County Engineer’s Office is moving ahead with plans for the rehabilitation of the historic Stonelick Williams Corner Covered Bridge.

“After several public hearings to solicit citizen comments, and considering five options for the project, we are beginning design work in May with anticipated construction on the $1.2 million project to begin in January of 2012,” said Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger at a Board of Clermont County Commissioners town meeting on Monday, April 19, 2010.   “We recognize that this bridge is important to the community.  Throughout this process we are keeping two major things in mind, preservation and protection of this historical treasure for generations to come.”
