Richmond Bridge Rehabiliation

This Recovery Act project rehabilitated a closed bridge and brough economic relief to the residents of Richmond, Vermont. The closure of the bridge due to structural deterioration had created substantive economic distress for the retail businesses that relied on the traffic that the bridge carried. By the time it completed in July 2009, employees of the prime contractor, T.Buck Construction (T.Buck) and its eight subcontractors had logged 13,619 hours and received combined payroll of $318,380.
