Armstrong and Clarion counties will share the cost of repairing the St. Charles Bridge that straddles the line between Madison and Porter townships.

An inspection last year revealed structural weaknesses in the bridge on St. Charles Road.

Six bids ranging from $47,247 from Terra Works in Clarion, to $132,000 from Gary Metzinger Cement Contractor in Pittsburgh, will be reviewed by Bill Braun of Senate Engineering, Harmar, and Armstrong County Planning Coordinator Christoper Jaros. The pair is expected to recommend which of the companies bidding should get the contract during the March 6 Armstrong County Commissioners meeting.

The two counties have agreed to split the cost of the project equally, Jaros said. Armstrong will pay its portion with money it gets from the Marcellus shale impact fee allotment.

The project is expected to start in the spring.
