The Rock Riffle Bridge located on County Road 25 in Athens County will be replaced by 2016.
Athens County assistant engineer Donnie Stevens says bridge was selected by ODOT from a list of deficient bridges as part of a partnership program between the agency and county governments. The small bridge experiences a lot of local traffic and the underside is crumbling.
The replacement bridge is expected to cost $177,000.
The Athens County Engineers Department will do the surveying and right of way plan for the new bridge project along with other bridges as part of the program. This is the first time Athens County has taken part in the program.
