Historic Commission Reviews Proposed 8 Arch Bridge Work

by Paul Saulnier
March 20, 2017

As the scope of work for the 8 Arch Bridge takes shape, the committee has been meeting with other committees and boards which have an interest in or review authority over the work. Since the bridge is more than 50 years old, the Historic Commission's input is important.

Above, Historic Commission chairwoman, Kim Sullivan, listens as Jay Robinson, below, Chair of the 8 Arch Bridge Committee, describes the results of the investigations performed to date, including the proposed renovations intended to stabilize the bridge and the alterations necessary to allow it to be safely used as part of the rail trail.

Above, Herb Brockert, a member of the 8 Arch Bridge Committee, runs through the proposed work and answers Kim's questions, using an artist's rendering of what the final project might look like.

Sullivan liked the concept as it preserved the bridge as much as could be expected. She could not speak for the entire commission but would advocate for the project as proposed.
