Richland County stands ready for another transformative period in its infrastructure development. Guided by County Engineer Adam Gove, the county is undertaking significant projects to enhance its transportation network. With 347 miles of roadway and 359 bridges under its jurisdiction, the County Engineer’s Office is pivotal in ensuring the safety and efficiency of travel for all residents.

Current Initiatives: Strengthening Foundations

A key current focus for the County Engineer’s office is the Crider Rd Bridge project in Mifflin Township, a major undertaking with a contract amount of $2,411,504.34 awarded to Mosser Construction. This project, which started on December 4, 2023, and is slated for completion by July 31, 2024, exemplifies the county’s efforts to upgrade its infrastructure. By replacing the existing bridge with a new concrete I-beam and reinforced concrete deck, Richland County aims to enhance safety and longevity.
