Preble County, OH, September 13, 2011 - The Preble County Engineer's Office recently announced the raising of $1.8 million to build a new covered bridge for Preble County residents and tourists from around the world to enjoy.
The staff at the Preble County Engineer's Office began working aggressively with the County Engineer's Association of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Transportation, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, the Army Corporation of Engineers, Smolen Engineering and Palmer Engineering, to develop plans, obtain permits and secure federal funding.
