Lake Holcombe Town Board; More equipment, and a new bridge?
Last month, after an inspection from the county, the Town of Lake Holcombe did some calculations for the Pine Lake bridge and dropped the bridge’s weight limit from 40 to 10 tons. Following the change, town chairman Beau Bowlin said a new bridge could cost around half a million dollars.
Now, after talking with the county again, a bridge might not set the town back as much, and it could happen sooner than the 10 years originally planned for; eight years sooner.
After the county inspected the 35 bridges in need of repair or replacement around Chippewa County, the Pine Lake bridge ranks No. 2.
