County commissioners approved plans this week for 17 road projects totaling more than $1.4 million and covering more than 23 miles.
The county appears to be getting a little more asphalt for its dollar this year compared with last year, county roads superintendent Warren Martin said. Bids came in 4 percent under his estimates.
“The cost seems to have come down on trucking the material in to District 3,” he said. District 3 covers western townships in the county, which are farther from contractors and their materials suppliers.
