Woodford County, Illinois

The single span, closed abutment bridge is located on a branch of Blue Creek located in the NW ¼ of Sec. 7-T 27N – R3 W of the 3rd PM; the bridge was built in 1977. The streambed has scoured nearly 4’ to the point that it is now near or slightly below the bottom of the bottom abutment plant. Opportunities exist to reduce erosion and safety concerns through structural and non-structural measures.

This is a potential new start. A letter of request has been received from the sponsor. The initial phase of work will be to complete a Federal Interest Determination. This project is awaiting funding.
