AUTHORIZED TODAY Costs of Structure on Douglas Pavements Divided In Commissions Order. State's Attorney A. C. Bohm today received copies of an order ot the Il- linois Commerce Commission auth- orizing a new bridge over the Illinois Central Railroad at Blnney Station and apportioning the cost of the structure. The bridge will be a part of the new highway between Livings- ton and New Douglas and is about two miles east of Livingston. The order of today is based upon a hearing before tha Commerce Cora- mission several weeks ago. Plans lor the bridge have not been prepared but the work will probably be done during 1932. The old bridge will be used until the new one can be de- signed and erected. Under the commission's order the county must bear the expense of mak- ing earth approaches and paving them. The railroad la given authority to lemove the present wooden struc- ture, which will probably be design- ed by railroad engineers. The county must pay 70 percent of the cost of the old bridge and the rall- load is lequired to pay the remain- der. Construction of the new road has been held up for nearly two weeks on account of rains and muddy condi- tions. Less than a day's work, appro- ximately 700 feet of concrete must be poured to finish the Job.
