Town acts to recoup $1.2M owed on bridge project finished 7 years ago

Town Engineer William Hurley looks forward to putting construction of the Harbor Road bridge behind him. "I can't wait to put the four or five file drawers full of paperwork in the basement" of Sullivan-Independence Hall, Hurley said at Wednesday afternoon's Board of Selectmen's meeting. "I can't wait for that to happen." Construction of the two spans that comprise the bridge over the Mill River was completed about seven years ago, but the finances remained unsettled. On Wednesday, the selectmen voted 3-0 to authorize First Selectman Michael Tetreau to enter into a second supplemental agreement with the state so the town could receive the rest of its anticipated reimbursements on the project, which Hurley said total about $1.2 million.
