Here’s the Mill Street bridge at four on the afternoon on January 23rd. Some asphalt had been put down, but it’s not completely covered. During the evening, I received an email from Hopedale selectman Bob Burns, who lives next to the bridge, saying that it opened to traffic at about 6 PM.

Larry Macomber shown putting up a sign at the Little Red Shop Museum, that was once at the office of the union which represented Draper workers, on January 24. The sign was donated by Bob Goss. Larry also put up the signs that were once on the Draper Main Office and the West Foundry. He’ll soon be hanging signs from the Harel House, donated by Irene Cascella-Hakins.

The bridge is open – January 25.
