Due to the two disasters that Davison County encountered in 2019 there was significant damage to larger structures including culverts and bridges. At this point we are working to assess the damage and prioritize. The work that needs to be done to a bridge is extensive and takes months for each process from bore testing, hydraulic studies and the design phase. Below you will find a map of our 10 structures the county is planning on repairing or replacing in the coming years. They are numbered with one being the highest priority. Davison county is proud to announce that the highway was able to complete repair to all 10 structures that were damaged. In 2021 three large structure bridges will be completed and opened to the public. Their locations are as follows:
