Reconstruction is coming along on Bridge Street. There’s plenty of work to do until the resurfacing happens; substructure work includes new catch basins, manholes, sewer lines and water laterals, as well as placement of light pole bases. This will all happen pretty quickly as Tallum Construction machinery travels up and down the road from the staging site by the river.

Though this construction phase may seem tedious to those that frequent the area, the preliminary work necessary to bring this to life had been amazingly time-consuming and complex. There were countless steps, from surveying, designing, permitting, double checking, confirming, notifiying, approving, bidding, and purchasing to coordinating between state, city, utility companies, residents and business owners. It has taken almost two years since the designs were first delivered to us. I’m relieved to see the street in the apparent disarray it’s in, because it means that in just about a month, the project will be done!
