County to wait on results of ash road tests
Placeholder Image

Effingham County commissioners hope to have results next week on tests conducted on potential ash road mixtures.

Commissioners tabled accepting a bid and proceeding with work on one of the county’s most severely damaged ash roads, Forest Haven. Under one bid, from APAC, the unsuitable roadway material would be removed and a new ash mix base would be put in. The cost of that option is about $264,000.

The second option, from Baker Infrastructure Group, would be for a complete rebuilding of the road, removing all the ash from the .9-mile long stretch and putting in a more traditional road base. That cost is almost $292,000.
