Pond Eddy Bridge up for discussion; byway committee wants decision re-examined

He asked the board to pass a resolution “urging that the decision to take down the existing bridge be reconsidered, and that another look be taken at maintaining the existing bridge and upgrading it to be able to carry 18 or 20 tons or some weight that is sufficient to meet the needs of the people living on the other side,” which the board passed.

However it would likely require a tremendous effort to change the course of the project at this point. Many interested organizations and agencies have already signed off on the replacement option, and May said there is a tentative schedule to send out bids for the project in the latter part of 2012, with construction beginning in spring of 2013.
