Veterans Memorial Bridge cleanup costs

The cost of the recent mayfly cleanup on the Veterans Memorial Bridge was absorbed by the  construction company, according to Ahmad Mahmoud, project manager for Kuharchik.
Borough Manager Sam Sulkosky said that instead of multiple cleanups, they waited until the mayfly season was over.
"There's no use cleaning it up and coming back two weeks later to do it all over again," he said.
In the future, the borough will be responsible for maintenance, including mayfly cleanup, which will cost about $2,000 for labor and supplies.

  3. Clarification: According to last night's council meeting, the borough does the maintenance and bills PennDOT for the cost.
