Main Street Bridge Alcove Column Damaged in Apparent Hit and Run

04/01/2015

One of the columns that supports the southwest alcove on the Main Street bridge was damaged last week. It appears to have been damaged as a result of a hit and run incident that most likely occurred sometime between March 23rd and March 24th.

Structural engineers have examined the damage to the column and repairs to the structure will be completed soon. The adjacent sidewalk is open and is safe for passing pedestrians; however, the alcove will remain closed until repairs can be completed.
