Equipment delivery delays Coventry bridge closure

COVENTRY, R.I. (WPRI) — The three-week closure of a Coventry bridge has been postponed, according to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.

Officials said construction is necessary on the Hopkins Hollow Bridge because a recent inspection found the concrete and stone arch to be significantly deteriorated.

The project, which was scheduled to begin Monday and last three weeks, has been pushed off until at least Tuesday or Wednesday.

According to RIDOT, the construction crews are awaiting the delivery of another piece of equipment and cannot begin work until it arrives.
