Bids to be opened for 15 miles of roadwork

Bids will be opened at the Harrison County Board of Commissioners meeting on Aug. 19 for nearly 15 miles of road improvements, including resurfacing blacktop roads and paving gravel ones.
This is the third bid letting this construction season and will bring total improvements to 46-1/2 miles this year.
All the roads this time are gravel except three roads in the First District, which are blacktop to be resurfaced.
The improvements will be paid for with gaming tax revenue from Caesars Indiana at Bridgeport. So far this year, $4 million has been earmarked for road improvements. Another $600,000 appropriation for contractual services is pending before the Harrison County Council and is expected to be acted upon at the council’s Aug. 12 meeting.
