Insurer settles with county over damaged roads
Published: May 22,2013
CORINTH — The insurer for a transport company has paid $247,500 for damage to Alcorn County roads in 2011.
The board of supervisors accepted the settlement for damage to Holly Church Road and Henson Road. Supervisors say the roads were damaged during a transport job by Burkhalter Rigging of Columbus.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the county had filed a claim for $290,000, the amount estimated by county engineer Cook Coggin that the road repairs would cost.
Supervisors had approved Burkhalter’s transport through the county on July 14, 2011, of a 773,000-pound, 26-foot diameter steel pipe from Holly Springs to a steel fabricator at Yellow Creek port in Tishomingo County.
