Limestone County commissioners received news that TxDOT is willing replace three of its bridges, though that could be several months in the future.

The court approved an advanced funding agreement with TxDOT these bridges:
• LCR 250 at Tehuacana Creek.
• LCR 723 at Steele Creek Relief.
• LCR 723 at Mills Creek.

Burkeen explained later how the funding agreement works.

“They (build) these bridges,” Burkeen said of TxDOT. “We have to do a matching contribution, but we do that by fixing other bridges that need to be fixed.”
