A covered bridge in Moreland Township targeted for rehabilitation next year will come at no cost to Lycoming County.
County transportation planner Mark Murawski outlined plans for the bridge work during Tuesday's county commissioners meeting.
The 3-ton span, one of three covered bridges in the county, will undergo foundation work and other restoration needs.
"It's not designed to carry heavy traffic," Murawski told the commissioners.
The bridge, located along Township Road 664, was built in 1888 and is one of about 1,500 existing covered bridges in the nation, he noted.
Its rehabilitation is part of state Department of Transportation efforts to preserve existing covered bridges in Pennsylvania.
Work is set to begin next spring with a completion date in the summer.
The Pennsylvania Historical Commission has approved the $800,000 project with costs picked up by the state.
In other business, Jason Yorks, county resource recovery manager, asked commissioners to consider for approval at their regular meeting Thursday a $35,262 contract with Northeast Industrial Manufacturing for 10 recycling containers and a $24,783 agreement with United Services Group Inc. for four 50-cubic-yard recycling containers.
Yorks requested an agreement with North Fork Grinding & Machine of Johnstown for sharpening of grinder blades on an as-needed basis.
He reported to commissioners that county recycling materials received at the landfill decreased slightly between 2008 and 2009.
In other matters, commissioners are expected to consider awarding a contract for landfill equipment and extending an agreement for car washing services.
Commissioners announced that a report will be presented Thursday regarding U.S. Census work in the county.
