Look for August opening of revamped Broadway bridge

Work continues on the rehabilitation of the Broadway bridge in downtown Fulton.

Gene Cilentro of the state Department of Transportation said the northside deck has been poured and continues to cure. The decorative railing was poured Thursday and Friday and then it must cure over the course of a few weeks.

The new sidewalk has a cure time as well.
