Vesta Road Bridge Replacement

March 25, 2024

The Huron County Engineer seeks comments on a Bridge Replacement Project (HUR TR 182 – 01.16) PID 113802 on Vesta Road over the East Branch of the Vermilion River in Clarksfield Township.

The Huron County Engineer’s Office is planning on replacing a bridge on Vesta Road over the East Branch of the Vermilion River between Eaton and Ferry Roads.  The single span through truss bridge was built in 1962 and is in poor condition with weight restrictions. The proposed replacement will consist of prestressed concrete box beam superstructure on capped pile concrete abutments.

The proposed project is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area of the East Branch of the Vermilion River.  Best management practices for sediment and erosion control will be used throughout construction to ensure that impacts to the floodplain are minimized. A No-Rise Certification will be made by a Registered Professional Engineer.

Construction is currently scheduled to begin in spring of 2026 at an estimated construction cost of $1,200,000 with work lasting approximately 90 days.

Written comments concerning the proposed project may be mailed to Huron County Engineer’s Office, ATTN: Lee Tansey, 150 Jefferson Street, Norwalk, Ohio 44857. 

You may also contact Lee by phone (419) 668-1997 or by email ltansey@huroncountyengineer.org.  Any comments must be received by April 26, 2024.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
