The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors made two decisions concerning future construction in the county. The first concerned the installation of a light at the intersection of 32nd St. and Libertyville Rd. in rural Jefferson County. Supervisor Richard says it’s a very busy intersection and the visibility hasn’t been good since a bridge went in nearby. He says they had heard some complaints about visibility so they decided to add the light to help the visibility. Reed says the second project concerned the approval of a contract for a culvert on Jasmine Road over Middle Walnut Creek. He says the tonnage had been reduced to 5 tons which made it hard for farmers hauling crops. He says they are replacing it with a large box culvert which will allow tractors and semis to safely go across the bridge.
