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.

Long seen as having devastated Sun Belt cities, the subprime mortgage crisis unleashed turmoil on Ohio and other rural areas. Now federal officials are pledging regulatory attention and financial help. Subprime loans were distributed in the rural U.S. at even higher rates on average than in metropolitan counties. Much of it was concentrated in Appalachia and other areas stretching from Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky to Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and the Great Plains, according to government data provided to The Associated Press by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Middlebury College.
