By Dan Bechtold, Editor

Several residents attended the public hearing on the five year Tripp County highway and bridge improvement plan Friday morning at a special meeting of the Tripp County Commissioners.

Derek McTighe of Brosz Engineering of Pierre conducted the meeting.

The deadline for submitting the application with the Department of Transportation was Friday afternoon.

Counties are required to update a transportation plan to be eligible for local Bridge Improvement Grant (BIG) funding. Once eligible, Tripp County may submit applications to construct, reconstruct bridges based on, but not limited to, project need and funding mechanisms available.

There are several projects listed in the priority list for 2018.

McTighe explained one of the project Brosz Engineering wants to have shovel-ready plans made up is for the Rahn Lake bridge. This is one of the projects Tripp County is seeking a BIG grant.
