The Ithaca Journal’s May 2 “County Watch” (http://tinyurl.com/85pmw46) includes these bits regarding the BDT:
Construction bidding on the second Black Diamond Trail bridge ended Wednesday. The apparent low bidder for the Willow Creek bridge is Silverline Construction from Burdett, with a bid of $392,718; state regulators still need to approve the bid package. The bridge is to have a concrete deck with timber rails.
Construction on Glenwood Creek bridge, the other half of the trail bridges project, began about two weeks ago with a winning bid of $486,000 from R DeVincentis Construction from Binghamton. The bridge, also with a concrete deck and timber rails, is scheduled for completion in October.
Funding for the projects came from the state and a private bequest.
