Section 5591.25 | Board of county commissioners of one or more counties may build bridges.


When it becomes necessary for the public convenience to bridge a stream of water which is on or near the lines of two or more counties, which are traversed by, or lie on or near the road on which such bridge is needed, the board of county commissioners of such interested counties may build or authorize the building of such bridge jointly, to be paid for, with the approaches thereto, in such proportion as the boards agree upon. The expense of keeping such bridge in repair shall be paid by the counties interested, in the same proportion as the expense of building such bridge was paid.
