Singleton Street Bridge to get mini-makeover

June 20, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The concrete deck of the Singleton Street Bridge is getting a mini-makeover after public works crews found a hole clean through it.
City officials discovered the problem after state bridge inspectors reported there was “a pothole” in the deck a couple of weeks ago. But Public Works Director Sheila McGauvran said that when city highway crews checked they found an opening in the deck about the size of the briefcase.
“You could look right through it and see the Blackstone River,” she said.
