The Public Works Department is closing Cherniske Road Bridge effective immediately. We have been monitoring it since the summer and there has recently been a shifting in the abutment. DPW staff and our consulting engineers evaluated the conditions and came to the conclusion to close the bridge. Detour routes will be posted as well as available on the Town's and DPW's websites. We are working with the engineers to expedite the bridge replacement. We will be sending out more information once it is available.
