Update: Hales Road Bridge Project Now 99.9% Complete!

Earlier this week, “06880” reported that the long-lasting eternal Hales Road bridge project would be completed “within a year after Chelsea Clinton is sworn in as president.”

The timetable has been moved up dramatically.  If new information is correct, the bridge will be open even before John Boehner replaces Nancy Pelosi as 2nd in line for succession to the presidency (behind Joe Biden).

An alert “06880” reader contacted a high-ranking official at Loureiro Contractors.  Yesterday, the official said the bridge will be open “the middle of next week.”

The delays were caused, he added, as “a result of coordinating with Metro-North on power outages that allowed them to work on the bridge only at night.”

We don’t want to claim that “06880” has a lot of juice — or that the lack of juice was the reason for the centuries-long construction delay.

On the other hand, we’re just sayin’….

At any rate, we’ll believe it when we see it.  And when we see it, we’ll enjoy the end of long delays for everyone in the greater Hales Road area.

Enjoy this sight now. As of next week, it may be a thing of the past.

  4. Time to put the stop sign back up on Greens Farms Rd in anticipation and slow down the drag strip before the opening D’ja Think ?

    On August 11, 1964, on the first day of getting my driver’s license, I drove down that Turnpike Connector (Greens Farms Road) at 110 mph in my parent’s Bonneville. Never have driven that fast since. Yep, CHIP, better put that stop sign back up.

  6. Stop signs are used to manage intersecting traffic, not to control speeding. The old sign was never there that long. Let it rest in peace.

  7. Counterfactual.
