District 3: Road & Bridge Report (Apr 2011)


While running for office, I said that I wanted to be transparent and one of the ideas was to publish a monthly road and bridge report.  In keeping with that commitment here is the first one.

We received a bridge inspection report from an engineering company on our bridges.  All passed inspection; however, we did do some minor maintenance on three.  Blue Canyon and 7 Sisters bridges are on the Meers-Porter Hill Road, and the other bridge is on the Comanche-Caddo Line Rd. These structures were sound, but the problem was scouring on the downstream side and was fixed by filling it with large rocks.  (An item of interest, the 7 Sisters Bridge was built in 1915, which is a testament to our forefathers engineering skills.)
