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.

“They said they’d fix it,” Garner said, per an agreement for the contractor to deal with such problems. “I’m sure they will,” Commissioner Bill King added. “I talked with them and they realized damage was going to happen. I’m sure they’ll be good about taking care of it.”
