When you’ve got the largest bridge project in the history of Portage County, that also happens to be located on one of the busiest streets (SR 43) in the County, managing public information is going to be a really big part of this project. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw the new public brochure for the project that the City/County/ODOT team has put out. It’s clear that the project team recognizes that managing public expectations is going to be just as important as managing the bridge contractors and they’re working hard to get off to a good start. It comes just in time as the demolition of the buildings has started and should really get rolling this week.
