November 7, 2017. NEL, the contractor who will be making the alterations to the 8 Arch Bridge, met with representatives of the town to begin planning the work.

The team includes, left to right, Jay Robinson, chair of the 8 Arch Bridge Committee, Alison Lima and Herb Brockert, committee members, Dan Crovo, Project Manager with Gill Engineering the firm that prepared the plans and specifications, Sarah DeLucia, Project Engineer with NEL, Lyle Gravelle, Vice President of NEL Corporation, and Paul Saulnier, committee member. Committee member Dennis Ferreira could not make the meeting. Photo taken by Mr. Selfie, below.

Also present were Selectman Kevin Conley, above left, and Jeff Ritter who are responsible for approving and paying the bill.

DeLucia and Gravelle outlined their plans for completion of the work. A project schedule will be given to the town in a few weeks. Once the final documents are signed and the bridge becomes the responsibility of NEL, they plan to close the entrances to the bridge, preventing access by the public. Ritter indicated that he will ask the trail committee to add signs notifying the public of the closure.

NEL plans to begin the demolition portion of the work in December. Construction of the prefabricated sections of the new concrete deck will be completed over the winter by a company in Connecticut and will be ready for installation next Spring. The railing system will also be fabricated over the winter by a company in Lynn, Massachusetts and ready for installation in the Spring.
