Repaired NT bridge will be rededicated Monday

NORTH TONAWANDA – The bridge connecting Tonawanda Island to the mainland will be rededicated Monday after a $2.4 million rehabilitation project, the city announced Friday.

Mayor Arthur G. Pappas; State Sen. Robert G. Ortt, the former mayor; Rep. Brian Higgins and Assemblymen John D. Ceretto and Robin L. Schimminger will be among the officials attending the rededication ceremony at 2 p.m. Monday at the Tonawanda Island end of the bridge.
