Yesterday afternoon several people from the county came out to inspect the bridge:
Doug Stanley County Administrator
Bob Childress Deputy County Administrator
Chief Mabie Warren County Fire Chief
Gerry Maiatico Fire Marshall
These officials were met at the bridge by 2 members of the BOD. It was determined that the bridge remains structurally sound and safe to drive over for now. Today we're having some brush and tree branches cut back, digging out 3 more feet and installing 12 tons of softball sized stone in an effort to control the erosion problems. This is the recommendation made by Bob Childress after yesterday's inspection of the bridge and the work that was already completed.
Here is Bob's info: Robert B. Childress joined Warren County as the Deputy County Administrator in June 2010 after working 22 years for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). During his time with VDOT he served as the Assistant Resident Administrator for the Luray Residency and Assistant Resident Engineer. Bob holds an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Management/Supervision and is a graduate of Virginia Tech University’s Transportation Construction Management Institute and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Transportation Management Institute, and holds numerous other certifications through the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).
Given Bob's background, the BOD feels confident in his assessment and will follow his recommendations immediately.
