Dishman Lane Design Followed Proper Procedures
Posted: 31-Jul-2002 1:39AM CDT

City of Bowling Green Public Works Director Emmett Wood told the Bowling Green City Commission that the proper procedures were followed in the design of an extension of Dishman Lane. The extension collapsed in February leaving a hole that was 15 foot deep and 40 feet across. Wood said the planning began over 10 years ago and construction began in 1996. He said small changes were made to the plan and that changes to the drainage system caused by these changes may not have been accurately assessed. In hindsight, he says, these could be considered to be errors.
