High Street Bridge Reopened

RICHMONDVILLE — Richmondville Days Events began on Friday, May 31st with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to acknowledge the reopening of the High Street Bridge. Carl Warner (Cargie), Village Mayor, began his speech by stating, In 1929 the original bridge was erected and it stood steadfast for 95 years. But, in 2011 Hurricane Irene came through and an assessment of the bridge was done.  The bridge was deemed unsafe and had to be shut down. It has been shut down for 12 years. Our previous Mayor, Kevin Neary began the process of replacing the bridge. He got everyone together and got the ball rolling for the reconstruction of the bridge.  It has been 12 years now and we can finally open our bridge back up.

Thanks was given to the following for all their work on this project, Schoharie County Highway Commissioner Dan Crandall, GPI Engineering, ING Civil – Ryan and his team, A & K Slipform, Richmondville DPW, Richmondville Power & Light, Cobleskill Stone Carl feels this is one of the best bridges in Schoharie County.
