“The one thing that’s going to be left over until next spring is that one section where the bridge is from the Back River, specifically the sidewalk,” Kezer said.
Kezer explained that the structural part of the sidewalk on the bridge is compromised and there is a plate underneath the asphalt covering what would otherwise be a big hole.
“The fix is a pre-engineered footbridge that’s going to be put in place as the sidewalk,” Kezer said. “So it’s an independent bridge from the road portion.”
In addition to the progress on Elm Street, Kezer also said he’s received positive responses from residents about the Fern Avenue bridge, which was reopened a couple of weeks ago after being closed for construction. Noticeable progress has also been made on the new CVS building at the corner of Route 110 and Main Street, which the developers say will be finished by January.
