You Thought Bridge Work Was Done
Another $174,000 worth of work on the Barrington Bridge is expected to be finished by the end of this month.
You thought the work on the Barrington Bridge was finished. It may finally be done by the end of this month.
A contractor hired by the RI Department of Transportation is making some finishing touches to the bridge, according to a story in the Barrington Times.
This is the bridge, of course, that was way over budget and took about 12 years to design, build and open again to traffic.
The work still to be done, according to the Times story, includes repairing portions of the seawall near the Police Cove parking lot, relocating navigational lights that were erected on the wrong parts of the bridge, and removing some steel sheeting just below the water line along the northeast edge of the bridge.
The remaining work will cost about $174,000. The bid went to HK&S Holdings Construction. Total price of the bridge exceeded $22 million.
