Demolition of Chappaqua bridge moves forward
An effort by a group of Chappaqua residents to save a historic bridge was rebuffed Monday.
A judge denied a motion to reconsider his decision not to stop the demolition of the Route 120 Bridge, ending the group's legal case. Charles Napoli and nearly 20 other Chappaqua residents said in their complaint that the proposed new bridge won't ease traffic congestion.
However, New Castle Supervisor Barbara Gerard says she thinks the new bridge, which will be wider than the old one, will help with traffic concerns.
Construction on the new bridge is scheduled to be completed in 2010. Demolition of the 80-year-old bridge will begin in early February, officials say.
