The town is hoping to get 50% state reimbursement for about $1 million in repairs to two bridges in town. The bridges, on Spring Hill Road and Old Town Road, are both at least 45 years old.
“Water has been getting in and causing the bridge to deteriorate,” said Chief Administrative Officer Cynthia Katske about the Spring Hill Road bridge. The fix entails adding a waterproof membrane to the structure, at an estimated cost of about $250,000. The work could happen as soon as 2019.
