Johnson, VT, May 21, 2001 - The Selectboard received from the State AOT, spec. requirements for guard rails to be attached to the Power House Bridge deck. The board will meet June 4 to select a bid, and as part of the bid we are looking for who can finish the rail installation the soonest. The board's intentions is to have the bridge open ASAP for traffic.
The Selectboard's hope and intention is still to rebuild the Covered bridge. Sen. Bartlett and Rep. Woodward have been working very hard in the closing days of the legislative session to secure the money for the Town to be able to rebuild the structure.
With the events of recent, Sen. Jefford's influence and ability to secure the funds for Covered Bridges as he previously could, remains to be seen. We will post updates as they develop.
