If you’ve crossed the busy Highway 127 bridge in the Bethlehem Community this week perhaps you noticed some work trucks and equipment parked nearby. The State Department of Transportation has awarded a contract to a private company to paint the exposed steel beneath the bridge. The project began last week and there is no timetable for the project’s completion. The work is being done at least partially during the evening hours with the majority of the work being done from a barge. No traffic delays are expected.
