Franklin County commissioners Tuesday approved a bid from Athena Engineering and Construction, LLC, to provide hauling services for the Schubert Road overlay project.

The cost was approved for $7.50 per ton. It is expected that the company will provide eight to 10 trucks to haul materials from Capital Quarry in Sullivan to Schubert Road.

Presiding Commissioner Tim Brinker said that the county couldn’t provide the service itself, so the commission sought outside help.
