The first of what are expected to be several road failures caused by heavy loads carried to EDP Renewal wind farm construction sites in northeast Allen County occurred this week.
Mitch Garner, director of Public Works, told commissioners Friday morning a culvert at the intersection of 1600 Street and Texas Road collapsed under weight of a transport.
