Choudrant explores appropriations grant
The grant was to help with the sewage system needed if a new bridge over Interstate 20 is to be built, Choudrant Mayor Bill Sanderson said
“This started about five years ago when we were working on a federal appropriations grant for a street,” Sanderson said. “If an accident occurs on the Interstate, traffic is rerouted on Highway 80 via Highway 145.”
This, coupled with the possibility of rebuilding the Highway 145 bridge over the Interstate, makes building a new bridge in Choudrant a necessity, Sanderson said.
