The construction of the substructure for the new bridge that will carry traffic from Route 18 North to Route 6 East over Elm Street is progressing on schedule.
The bridge will allow direct access to the waterfront via Elm Street and is the first of three intersections along this corridor that will be updated for pedestrian travel. Streetscape, sidewalks, and ornamental lighting will also be installed.
Taking quick action that saved the gull and allowed work to proceed, a momentarily distracted gull allowed workers to move the nest, which contained one egg, and place it on the roof of an adjacent storage trailer.
The gull returned to the nest and is currently keeping a close watch over construction.
