Lawrence County Looks to Enhance Applications to State’s Bridge Improvement Program

Lawrence County officials are looking to find ways to make their grant applications to the state’s Bridge Improvement Program more competitive, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Although there are 82 preliminary engineering grants completed across South Dakota, just 8 have been awarded replacement grants. Last year, Lawrence County was awarded a preliminary engineering grant for the Whitewood Valley Road bridge, but was not a recipient of a replacement grant this year.

So far this year, only 20 replacement grants have been awarded. The Whitewood Valley Road bridge is competing against the remaining 82 preliminary engineering grants across the state that are seeking replacement funding. To become more competitive in the grant process, county officials are considering submitting a bid ready application next year as well as 50 percent match funding from the county.
