Sidewalk project in Bethel hits minor snag

First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker updated the board on the Beach Street sidewalks.  They are 80-percent complete.  There is a snag, though.  There's a culvert where the creek goes underneath, discovered when the Public Utilities Commission put a water line there. During the sidewalk replacement, crews found that the steel I-beam holding up the cement has two inches missing.  Knickerbocker says it's rotted completely through in the center of the beam.  There was a week delay, costing another $4,000-$5,000 for a replacement.  Knickerbocker says there should be enough grant money to cover the work.  He also informed the board that there was enough money in the budget to overlay all of Wolfpits Road.  It was going to be just the the top part with patching on the bottom part.
