BRIDGE REPAIRS WILL BE RUSHED
At a meeting of the Bridge company on Saturday the directors decided tto have the necessary repairs made to the bridge and to expedite the work so as t open the great bay highway for travel at the earliest possible date.
According t the directors of the Bridge Company they will seek to hold the original conractors for the construction of the bridge liable for the cost of the repair work. Estimates showed that it will not take more than a few weeks, possibly four, to make the needed repairs. This work was begun during the week and is being rushed to completion.
The opinion of the Bridge Company directors was that the bridge will be in good shape for opening in the early part of April, or probably during the latter part of March so that even the early summer travel will be accommodated.
