Canton bridge work finished ahead of schedule

Written by 

Traffic headaches caused by bridge work in downtown Canton for the past nine months are now over.

Detour signs were taken down Monday, marking the end of the $3.5 million project to replace the 1920s-era Park Street bridge over the Pigeon River.

 

“The last of the traffic barrels will be pulled up the first of September,” said John Herrin, project manager with Taylor and Murphy Construction, which performed the bridge work.

The project is finishing nearly three months ahead of schedule.

Downtown Canton has parallel one-way streets: Main and Park. While the Park Street bridge was being rebuilt, a dog-leg detour routed traffic from Park Street over to Main Street, which was reconfigured to handle a single lane of traffic in both directions for a short section.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
