Do we need to Repair or Replace the Bridges in Heritage?
State DOT has announced their plan to replace the Smith Creek bridge on Rogers Road & Sanford Creek bridge on Forestville Road. The DOT plans to get contracts to design and build the bridges this summer. They will incorporate pedestrian access for the greenway system as per the town requirements.
After designing, the projects will go to bid. Construction will not begin prior to 2013. Are they in need of repair? You bet! Both bridges are over 40 years old. From Carol Pelosi: “The Rogers Road (SR 2052) bridge is structurally deficient. Its project number is B-132. The Forestville Road (SR 2049) bridge is called functionally obsolete, meaning it may be sturdy but it cannot meet the demands of the kinds of traffic now on that road.”
