Carroll Engineering Corporation (CEC) is the appointed County Bridge Consultant to assist in the management and oversight of the County Bridge Program. Zac Knoble from CEC’s GIS Department created a map highlighting the County bridges along with their respective municipality, roadway, span length, creek crossing, structure type, and year built. The Director of Operations, Kevin Spencer, RLA was very pleased with the map and presented it to the Commissioners and other County Officials. The map will be integrated into the County’s GIS information and ultimately be placed on the County’s website for informational purposes.
