Purpose and Need / What's the Problem:
The Greene County Route V bridge, built in 1936, is experiencing deterioration. Approximately 813 vehicles use the bridge daily.
The bridge will be widened to 32 feet, making it a dual-lane bridge. Bridge needs to be replaced to meet today’s standard designs.
Route V bridge: Contractor crews will replace the current bridge. The new bridge will be 12 feet wider with 4 foot shoulders and will have new barrier walls, guardrails and permanent striping.
