GOSHEN — A company based in South Bend will serve as a consultant for the replacement of the bridge on C.R. 4 over Christiana Creek.

The Elkhart County commissioners signed an agreement Monday, Oct. 7, to hire Lawson-Fisher Associates for the project. The two-lane structure east of C.R. 7 will be replaced with a wider bridge with 6-foot sidewalks and 8-foot-wide shoulders. County highway manager Jeff Taylor told the commissioners that up to $149,100 of the company’s services will be covered partly by federal transportation dollars.

The commissioners signed a contract with the Indiana Department of Transportation for the $1 million project at the end of September. INDOT will pay for 80 percent of the cost, and the county will be responsible for paying the remaining 20 percent.
