Public hearing scheduled for State Road 46 bridge replacement

first_imgBatesville, In. — The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. in the Batesville Memorial Public Library about the proposed bridge replacement on State Road 46 over Little Laughery Creek.The Indiana Bridge No. 046-24-03124A (NBI No. 17430) on State Road 46 over Little Laughery Creek is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C because of its engineering significance as an exceptionally long example of a state-designed T-beam structure. As part of the Historic Bridge Inventory, initially the bridge was determined “Select” for preservation per the Programmatic Agreement Regarding Management and Preservation of Indiana’s Historic Bridges. Subsequent to the determination, the bridge’s condition, and the ability to rehabilitate the structure to meet current standards questioned the rationale for the “Select” designation and spurred a new alternative analysis. It was then determined to change the designation to “Non Select” and not suitable for preservation. The bridge has been marketed for re-use for over six months. Here is the information from the INDOT Historic Bridge Marketing website:This bridge has been previously listed or determined eligible for listing in the National Register or is a contributing resource within a historic district listed in the National Register. Therefore, this bridge was not reevaluated as part of this inventory project.The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on current design plans for a proposed State Road 46 bridge replacement over Little Laughery Creek. The public comment period will end on Friday, November 2.The project will require SR 46 to be closed during construction while using the official detour on state maintained routes of SR 3, I-74, and SR 229, however local routes may be used by local traffic. Access to all businesses and residences shall be maintained and school corporations and emergency services will be notified prior to any construction in regard to the closure or delays prior to any construction. The project will also include, but not limited to, transitional construction at the approaches along with placement of rip rap for scour protection and guardrail as needed. The project will not require new permanent right of way.Prior to the public hearing date, the environmental findings, and preliminary design plans for the project are available for viewing at the following locations:Batesville Memorial Public Library, 131 N.

Ighalo to reject Chinese club bumper deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Martins joins Wuhan Zall Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Manchester United star Odion Ighalo would prefer to turn his temporary spell at Old Trafford into a permanent one come the summer transfer window rather than return to Shanghai Shenhua, reports claimed. The Nigeria international has impressed since his January arrival, scoring four goals from eight appearances across all competitions so far. Manchester United sparked a backlash among both fans and pundits when they swooped to bring Ighalo in on the final day of the January transfer arrival. Many slammed the decision to sign a 30-year-old who had spent the last few years playing in the Chinese Super Leage, which isn’t anywhere near as intense as the Premier League. However, Ighalo has silenced his critics with some good performances so far. He scored on his first start for the club in a 5-0 thumping of Club Brugge and also bagged a brace against Derby County in the FA Cup. Ighalo also scored a stunner as United beat LASK 5-0 in the Europa League shortly before all football was put on hold. Amid his fine displays, Shanghai Shenhua want him back. They’re willing to offer the former Watford striker a salary worth £400,000-a-week – which would make him one of the best-paid players on the planet. But the Daily Mail said Ighalo has decided he’d rather stay at United on a reduced salary rather than return to the Far East. And that will be a boost to Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has already hinted he’d love to land Ighalo on a full-time basis. Speaking after the win over LASK nearly two week ago, the Norwegian said: “Odion has come in really well and he will improve and get better. “But he has qualities we saw in him and needed and we need those qualities for next season. “He’s a goal-scorer and a striker. He doesn’t worry too much about all that nonsense, build-up play – that’s a joke obviously. “He knows his job and role in the team, and he’s very good with his back to goal. “He’s a great link player, but maybe the best thing about him is his personality. He’s got the whole lot really.” Ighalo himself admitted earlier this month that he was living the “dream” by being at United, having supported the club while growing up in Nigeria as a child. Opening up on his shock arrival, he said: “I never believed it was going to happen because the time difference from China to the UK is crazy and with the coronavirus that is going on in China. “But dreams do come true. I prayed about it and it happened. When my agent told me about it I was hoping and longing, but I was having doubts in my mind because I was in China. “How was I going to fly to the UK? Am I going to beat this coronavirus to get in and United have another striker they are looking at? “I was happy my name was being mentioned but I did not put my mind on it 100 per cent because I thought it was not going to happen because of the situation in China. “When my agent called me and told me Manchester United wanted to do this deal I said ‘are you serious?’ and ‘how am I going to speak to the director because he doesn’t speak English?’. “I had to go to the translator and bang on his door. He had to go to the director to talk. I was talking to the translator and he was translating to the director, there were three-way calls with my agent and Man Utd were talking too. I didn’t get to sleep until 6am. “It still feels like a dream sometimes. But I don’t want to get carried away with too much emotion so that I am able to concentrate on training well and playing well. I know I am playing for the biggest club in the world.”Tags: Chinese Super LeagueEnglish Premier LeagueManchester UnitedOdion IghaloOld TraffordPlayer TransfersShangai Shenhualast_img read more

Men’s hockey goes through tough winter break stretch

first_imgIt’s been an up-and-down stretch of games for the Wisconsin men’s hockey team this winter, seeing one of its worst losses in program history yet one of its biggest wins of the season. The Badgers started their past five games with hosting the U.S. National Under-18 team in an exhibition match Dec. 12. Considering Wisconsin’s youth and high number of underclassmen on their roster, it was a rare opportunity for the Badgers to play a team younger than them.However, the Badgers were unable to take advantage of their youthful opponent and lost the game 4-1. UW took a 1-0 lead into the third period, but conceded four goals to the U-18 team over the final 20 minutes of play.After the loss, Wisconsin was able to get away for a holiday break before picking things back up a couple weeks later. While Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves said he was disappointed in their 4-1 loss, he felt his team could use the break to take a step back and hit the reset button.“I’m glad we have a break because it’s a time to re-boot the program,” Eaves said at the time. “Re-boot the computer here a little bit. They need to finish strong in school, go home and enjoy their family, and we’ll re-boot the program when we get back. We’re not where we want to be, we still have place and growth to have, and we’ll come back and do that.”Unfortunately for Wisconsin, the Badgers did not get the response they hoped for when they returned from their holiday break Jan. 2 for a two-game home series against Michigan Tech, who entered the game ranked fifth in the nation.In their first game of 2015, Wisconsin suffered their worst loss of the season, losing 8-1 to Michigan Tech. Michigan Tech’s eight goals were the most the Badgers had ever given up in a single game at the Kohl Center.Despite the blowout loss, Wisconsin redshirt senior defenseman Chase Drake said they were not going to let the game continue to faze them and vowed they would bounce back.“I think it’s just a minor set back,” Drake said. “We have to stay positive regardless of the outcome tonight. We’re just really looking forward tomorrow.”Eaves echoed the positive attitude following the loss, saying he was confident they would play better in the second game against Michigan Tech.“They are certainly not that much better than us,” Eaves said. “By playing tonight, we’ll get up to speed and be better tomorrow night.”Eaves was exactly right, as the Badgers responded to one of their worst performances by coming back and playing their best game of the season the next night. In the second game of the series, Wisconsin upset fifth-ranked Michigan Tech in a low-scoring 2-0 battle.Badger goaltender Joel Rumpel was pivotal in Wisconsin’s upset victory, recording one of the greatest goal-tending performances in recent memory. Michigan Tech dominated the shots on goal 47-19 and put pressure on the Badgers all night, but Rumpel came up big time after time, on his way to a career-high 47-save performance.Rumpel said he and his team were determined to come back strong after losing big the night before. Rumpel’s performance in goal earned high praise from teammate Morgan Zulinick.“Incredible. That’s the only way I can describe it,” Zulinick said. “[Rumpel] was amazing all night.”After Wisconsin’s series with Michigan Tech, the road ahead did not get any easier for the Badgers. For the second straight weekend, Wisconsin played a two-game home series against a top-five nationally ranked team, this time against the second-ranked Boston Terriers.Wisconsin kicked off the series with BU by continuing their improved play.  The Badgers outplayed the Terriers throughout the first two periods and were leading second-ranked Boston 3-1 late in the third period, but surrendered two goals in the last three minutes of the game.The second BU goal came in heartbreaking fashion, with just three seconds left in regulation. After a scoreless overtime period, the game ended in a 3-3 tie. While Eaves was disappointed the Badgers did not come out with a win, he was still impressed with the Badgers’ performance against another top team.“I’m focusing on the first 57 [minutes],” Eaves said. “We learned our lessons, but gosh [we] did so many tremendous things for so long.”After the heartbreaking loss, Wisconsin’s momentum came to a halt the following night, as they lost the rematch with Boston 6-1 on Jan. 10. UW outshot the Terriers 33-32 in the loss.The Badgers (2-12-2, 0-2-0 Big Ten) will continue a tough month of January with two series against their biggest rival, Minnesota, with another two-game series against Michigan in between series with the Gophers.last_img read more
