Smith County officials will consider putting about $200,000 into a new set of bridge improvements in the southeastern part of the county.

The Smith County Commissioners Court will consider approving contracts for the project at a regular meeting at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Smith County Courthouse Annex, 200 E. Ferguson St.

The project would involve replacing bridges for County Road 1125 at Butler Creek (also known as Greenbriar Road) and County Road 285 at Prairie Creek (also known as Old Omen Road).

The sum of the engineering, surveying, and construction contracts is $194,591. The firm that has quoted that price is Bartlett & West Inc.
