Ribbon-cutting planned for Monday at Waterport bridge
WATERPORT – Local officials are planning an 11:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting on Monday for the Waterport bridge, which reopened on Oct. 22 after about five months of construction work.
The bridge is 700 feet across. It’s the longest county-owned bridge. It stretches across Lake Alice and the Oak Orchard River.
Keeler Construction in Barre served as the contractor for the $1.5 million project.
Another county bridge that has been under construction reopened earlier this week. The bridge on Hulberton Road near Route 104 is brand new, a $1.3 million project over Sandy Creek in the Town of Murray.
