Freeport bridge

The agony is almost over for the 11,000 drivers who travel daily across the Donald R. Lobaugh Bridge (Freeport bridge). This project, which was supposed to be completed in 1990, is winding down.

Brayman Construction Corp. worked on this project, and on behalf of Freeport Borough, I thank Brayman for doing a fine job over the past three years. There were traffic delays, but they were kept to a minimum.

It seemed like Brayman's workers were always on the job, including the winter months. Brayman's project engineer, Evan Ring, and Carl Ray, project manager for PennDOT, were very cooperative throughout the construction and completed the project on time and within the budget.

As the old saying goes, temporary inconvenience, permanent improvement. This was a much-needed improvement.
