"Attention: Better Bridges Ahead". That imitation road sign was on the podium for a big announcement in Mansfield Monday afternoon. Lt. Governor Mary Taylor, Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jerry Wray, State Senator Larry Obhof, and State Representative Mark Romanchuk were at the Richland County Highway Garage to announce Ohio's three-year plan to replace bridges. Wray says more than 200 bridges will be replaced statewide over three years, at a cost of $120-million. Taylor says eleven bridges will be replaced next year in Richland, Ashland, and Morrow Counties. Richland County has nine on the list, with three being done next year. County Engineer Tom Beck says he's "so happy", because his office couldn't afford to do these projects without the state providing the funding. The bridge replacement effort is being funded through $600-million in cost reductions by ODOT.
