Where we live: Depew


Village officials are beginning to address repairs needed on the Lincoln Street bridge.

In response to questioning by resident Dan Beutler, Village Attorney Mark Aquino said engineers retained by the village are designing the repairs for the bridge, but it’s uncertain when that will be done.

Aquino said the bridge may be patched by year’s end, with a full rehabilitation done on the span next spring. “The board is committed to getting it done,” he said.

Beutler expressed concern about fire trucks and school buses that need to use the bridge.

This week:

• A ground-breaking ceremony for the new Boys & Girls Club will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday in front of the burned-out building at 60 Preston St. The club was destroyed by a fire on Jan. 1, 2013, and a new structure will be built during the next several months.

• Two new plaques commemorating the Korean conflict and Persian Gulf War are being installed at Veteran’s Park along Terrace Boulevard. A dedication ceremony is planned for this fall.
