Claverack Bridge Is Coming Back

The Register-Star reports today that the bridge on Route 23B over Claverack Creek is expected to reopen, on schedule, for Labor Day weekend: "Claverack bridge to reopen next week." 

The article talks about pieces of wood from a platform under the bridge seen floating in the creek and quotes Department of Transportation spokesman Bryan Viggiani as saying, "Their [sic] supposed to keep the creek as clean as possible. . . . They are supposed to take precautions and get things out of there when they are done."

They took precautions about some things. A reader kayaking on Claverack Creek last Sunday spotted these life preservers hanging on either side of the bridge, presumably there lest some unfortunate worker should topple into the creek below.
