Federal funding approved for local bridge project

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--Federal funding has been approved for a bridge replacement project on the Brown-Nemaha County line about four miles northeast of Wetmore.

The Brown County Commission Monday signed the paperwork for acceptance of the funding through the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Off-System Bridge Program for federal Fiscal Year 2020 for a project on Acorn Road over Muddy Creek.

Federal funding through the program will pay for 80 percent of the construction cost.

Brown and Nemaha Counties will split the remaining 20 percent along with engineering costs.

The Commission also signed an agreement with the engineering firm B-G Consultants, of Manhattan, to do the surveying work for the project.

A bid letting date for the project has not been set yet.
