It seems appropriate that right around the new year, volunteers removed the old sagging wooden bridge over the dam and replaced it with a new steel bridge. During the first week of December, volunteers Bernie Kelleher, Mike Francoeur, Pete Walkes, Dan Riozzi and Jim DeFonce disassembled the old bridge and brought it to the transfer station. A week later, the new bridge was erected by Keller Construction and Conrad Coon Crane Service using steel support beams donated by Colarusso Construction and steel deck grating and railings donated by Keller Construction. The bridge will be painted in the spring and is expected to last for many years. A huge thanks to the volunteers and companies who donated time and materials.
