The Franklin County Commission received eight bids to replace Herbst Road bridge, located five miles east of Union.

The bids were opened at Tuesday’s regular commission meeting.

The project includes grading and constructing a single span, 50-foot by 28-foot prestressed concrete voided slab beam bridge with associated roadwork.

The county will be reimbursed for 80 percent of the cost through the federal surface transportation program.

Second District Commissioner Ann Schroeder said the bids would be reviewed by the county highway department and a recommendation would be made to the commission as to which bid to select.

The project is expected to be completed in 2013.

The Herbst Road project is one of several STP bridge replacements going on in the county. Others include a bridge on Country Club Road and Enoch’s Knob Road bridge over Boeuf Creek.
