Commissioners approve 2013 road plan

If Boone County completes all 15 road construction projects scheduled in 2013, it will spend an estimated $750,000 on construction this year.
The ambitious road plan was presented Monday by Darrel Thorin, county highway superintendent, and approved by the county commissioners after a public hearing.
Many of the projects are carried over from last year and previous years.
No public comment was received at the hearing.
Carry-over projects include the Raeville Road asphalt overlay (project 220), the Primrose East prototype bridge project on 300th Street (project 315), and the Cedar Rapids historic bridge renovation (project 337).
