Newstead Supervisor Donald C. Holmes Monday night said work to repair the county-owned Crittenden Road bridge that spans the Thruway in the southern part of town is "close to schedule."
"Crews are ready to pour the concrete, and the project is expected to be completed sometime next month," Holmes said. The bridge has been closed for repairs since early August. Improvements include a new deck and concrete road replacement.
In other business, the board adopted a new fire hydrant maintenance policy to ensure that all hydrants in the town -- other than those serviced by the Erie County Water Authority -- are cared for so that they will provide long service and will be working in times of emergency.
In other matters, Town Attorney Nathan S. Neill said he will meet this week with Akron Village Attorney Thomas I. McElvein to further review a proposed water contract.
