It was completed this past Saturday night. Remaining major work items include closure pour (locks together the south portion of deck completed last year and the northern portion just completed on Saturday, Texas barrier on the north side of bridge (this decorative railing is already in place on the south side), bridge curb and sidewalks on both sides, granite curb and (concrete) sidewalks all four corners, bridge light poles and signal conduits, paving, removing two temporary walkways at bridge and cleaning drainage structures and setting new grates.

Rotary hears from OCO

At a recent Sunrise Rotary Club meeting, Rotarian Diane Cooper-Currier gave an interactive presentation to help with the understanding of those living in poverty. More than 50 percent of those in Oswego County are low-income wage earners and most of these people are employed in service jobs such as fast food restaurants. Many low-income families make just enough so that they do not qualify for assistance. To see this complete presentation go to playspent.org. Pictured with Cooper-Currier is Club President Ed Garrow. The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Fulton’s Riverside Inn.
