Taylor county highway construction and maintenance has moved ahead this year in spite of the wet weather this season. In a progress report made Tuesday, county highway commissioner Gordon Hamrick said, “We were forced to change out plans due to heavy rainfall, diverting efforts toward emergency type of work, some of which was caused by the heavy rains.” He added that work having to be delayed this year will receive priority at the outset of the next season.

The county highway department’s major project this season was the construction of the $154,000 bridge across the Black river on A & T in the town of Maplehurst. The 281 foot span replaces the old iron bridge known as the “McVey Bridge.”
