- A bridge rehabilitation project is set to begin on County Highway
2 (Nicholson Road) over Sugar Creek approximately 5 miles north of
Lincoln, between 2225th and 2250th Streets.
The project is scheduled to begin on March 13th and is expected
to last until September. During construction the road will be closed
Four of the bridge spans will be replaced, and the bridge deck will
be widened to 30 feet. New guardrail will also be installed.
The project was awarded to Freesen Inc., located in Springfield,
Illinois. The low bid on the project was $1,101,426. Funding will
come from Logan County’s allotment of federal transportation bridge
funds along with local property tax funds.
The bridge was originally constructed in 1976, replacing the steel
truss bridges that spanned Sugar Creek.
Cooperation and patience is always appreciated during the
construction season as we continue to improve the safety of our
roads and bridges. Status of our local construction projects can be
found on the New & Closures page of the County Highway Department
