It is that time of year when all hopeful eyes are set on warmer weather. At the same time, this is the season when contractors can take a breather, and engineers are busy planning the year’s projects.

Such has been the case in the office of Richland County Engineer Adam Gove. Gove, who has now been in his position for over six years, heads an office which has responsibility for 347 miles of public roadway and 359 bridges. New construction is certainly included, but importantly so is regular maintenance and repair.

The Engineer’s Office has set out its 2023 plan of action, as it were, in the form of a list of anticipated projects and an accompanying map. This year’s project list includes:
