The Marion County Board of Supervisors approved three resolutions authorizing construction contracts for road repairs at their meeting Wednesday morning. Two bridge contracts were awarded to Herberger Construction of Indianola for construction and safety improvements on the G-40 bridge over Cole Creek between Highway 92 and the west Pleasantville city limits and the bridge on Virginia Street over the Union Pacific Railroad. Iowa Bridge and Culvert of Washington was awarded a contract for a box culvert on Oregon Drive. Marion County Engineer Roger Schletzbaum says he hopes the bridge construction will be completed before next year’s planting season, and the box culvert construction should begin late summer or early fall of this year.
