Angelina County Commissioners approved a resolution of the "off-system" bridge program, Tuesday.

It's an agreement between the county and TxDOT to replace bridges located on public roads. 

County Judge Suiter said the two agencies will partner up to replace the select bridges in exchange for matching twenty-five percent of the cost or allocation towards the replacement of those bridges.  

"We work hand in hand with them to make sure this is a good project, and it's something we will have to do anyway. It's a win-win for TxDOT and the county," said Judge Wes Suiter, County Judge of Angelina County. 

The project will be an in-kind agreement. The county will work on road projects within the next couple of years that are equal that value of work in the county.
