GOSHEN — New weight restriction signs will soon be posted on a pair of bridges in Elkhart County.

The bridge on C.R. 43 about a half-mile south of U.S. 6 in the southern part of the county will have a 15-ton weight limit, and the bridge on C.R. 3 just south of C.R. 22 southwest of Elkhart will have a 13-ton weight limit. The recommendations to set maximum weights for the structures came as a result of annual bridge inspections, according to county highway manager Jeff Taylor.

 FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill. Unbehaun allegedly told investigators he intended to get caught so he could live his final years behind bars. On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Unbehaun is scheduled to be sentenced in Chicago. In 50 years, he has spent just six out from behind bars. His case highlights a wider societal dilemma about what to do with an increasingly elderly ex-cons, many of whom spent so much of their lives inside prison that they, like Unbehaun, can't cope with life on the outside.
