The Turtle Run Bridge in East Winthrop was found to be dangerously deteriorated and was closed last week. Further inspections have revealed it to be unsafe. The Town started to design a new bridge immediately. Work is underway to finalize a new design for the bridge and determine cost estimates. Contractors are being consulted regarding availability, capacity and expertise.
The Town has taken these immediate steps to diagnose the issues with the bridge and then move to planning a replacement. As updates are available on a timeline for replacement, and other details, they will be posted here.
