Village Board accepting design proposals for State Street bridge

Requests for proposals will be forwarded to six state approved engineering firms for design work on the State Street bridge.

While the funds for that project may not be released for several years, Village Board members determined it was in the best interest of the community to have the design work completed so the project was ready as soon as those grant funds are available. Design work may also surface short-term work, which could reopen the bridge until complete reconstruction is possible.
