In short, the extreme flooding over last weekend damaged some of the temporary steel shoring. There was no impact to the Kingsley Covered Bridge. The shoring must be removed and structures repaired to proceed. We expect this to have an impact on the overall project schedule. At this time, we do not know the extent of the impact but will keep you informed as things progress. Let me know if you or any of the town officials have any additional questions. You can contact me at office (518) 695-6739 or cell phone (518) 312-6511. Sincerely, John Conley  ...
