5-Year Construction Program
The Board of Supervisors has approved a 5-Year Construction Program for Secondary Roads. The program contains plans for road and bridge improvements over the next five years. Some of the improvements will involve specific road segments or bridge locations, while others will be general in location with Hardin County, such as upgrading pavement markings or rocking resurfacing. This Five-Year Construction Program is based on estimates of funds expected to be available and estimated costs for construction, maintenance and other work proposed to be accomplished. This program is subject to modification and is, therefore, not to be construed as a commitment or obligation of Hardin County. If you have any questions about this program, contact the Engineer's Office at 641.858.5058.
