Road/bridge approves amendment for Emmerson project

5 11 17

The Macoupin County road and bridge committee approved a motion for an amendment for federal participation in the Emmerson Airline project at last week’s committee meeting.

The amendment extends the deadline for getting the project done, as the joint agreement with the county and IDOT had expired in April.

The project is entering its fourth construction season. By extending the deadline, it keeps the county from receiving reimbursement funds for the project.

The committee also approved a motion to accept results of the oil and patch letting which was held on April 20.

County engineer Tom Rinehart said there were some decent prices for the road maintenance supplies this year.
