MIDDLEBURY, CT - 17 May 2009 - 051710MR01 - Work crews have begun construction on replacing the bridge over Long Meadow Pond. Black and Warner Construction Co. of Unionville is completing the replacement project for $1.2 million.
Roads near the bridge have been closed during the construction and detour signs have been placed around Route 188 to reroute drivers. The work is expected to take most of the summer. The state Department of Transportation released a report in 2001 that listed the bridge in "poor" condition.
