About the Projects
Portland Water Park Project
The Portland Water Park replaced the community’s aging public pool and was designed to improve the quality of life for Portland citizens. The new facility includes upgraded features for all ages, including a beach-entry pool, toddler activity zone, lazy river, vortex pool, water slides, dump bucket, lily bad walk and competition pool with spectator area. The facility also includes a new bath house with public restrooms, concessions area, pool office and mechanical equipment rooms. Click here to view project images.
Madison County Bridge #97 Project
After a 15-year closure, a historic, single-lane, single-span bridge was removed and salvaged to make way for the new, two-lane, three-span modernized bridge over Killbuck Creek in Madison County, Indiana. The existing channel of Killbuck Creek was realigned to reduce a large skewed crossing and alleviate flooding. This project improved overall hydraulic performance, enhanced vehicular safety, reconnected sections of Madison County and provided more direct routes for nearby residents.
