We have today completed a $16,000 FEMA funded repair on the west abutment of the Randall Bridge. The work was done by Aquateck from Maine. Engineering studies are being prepared to complete the abutment work next summer. The Lyndon Historical Society has contributed 10 percent of the cost and will contribute again next summer when the entire work is complete. The Society expects to be able to replace the roof on the Randall Bridge with funding from the Freeman Foundation through the Preservation Trust of Vermont.
The Chamberlin Mill Bridge on the South Branch of the Passumpsic received a new steel roof this summer as a part of the roof replacement program of VTrans.
We are still looking for ways to do abutment work on the Sanborn Bridge damaged during the spring flood. This is of course privately owned although Mr. Elliott [owner of the Lynburke Motel and the Sanborn Bridge] may be interested in selling or giving the bridge to improve the situation. He certainly doesn't want to spend money on the bridge since he is still accounting for motel damages from the [spring] flood.
