Morningthorp Bridge to Gain New Life
The Morningthorp Bridge—a wooden span connecting Route 22 to Railroad Avenue in Southeast has been closed since 2008 due to structural flaws. Estimates for repair and replacement have exceeded $4 million. The bridge and the area around it are in a state of disarray. Overgrown weeds are found at its entrance while broken bottles and pieces of glass are located nearby.
