Seven Bridges Road Repairs to Be Completed in April

first_imgBy John BurtonLITTLE SILVER – Chalk up another problem caused by Super Storm Sandy as area motorists face the longer than anticipated closing of Seven Bridges Road – and the required traffic detours.The ongoing work to replace an aging and deteriorating wooden bridge along the roadway, which required closing the road to all vehicular traffic, initially was expected to be completed in Jan­uary. As a result of the late October storm, the Mon­mouth County road project is now expected to take until mid- to late April to be completed, according to county spokeswoman Laura Kirkpatrick.According to Kirkpatrick and county engineer Joseph Ettore, the storm hit and flooded the area, causing an initial delay. Compounding matters, the project contractor was ready for workers to install the foundation piles for the bridge’s abutment. That meant JCP&L had to be contacted to disconnect the electricity for the overhead power lines, so that work could proceed.The power utility company at that point was focused on restoring electricity to the areas that had lost it because of the storm, and the Seven Bridges Road project became a lesser priority, thus further delaying the project, Kirkpatrick said.JCP&L wasn’t able to de-energize those lines until Dec. 7.County officials have asked the contractor to try to accelerate work – with workers laboring on weekends – to get the project completed as soon as possible. But the project is still expected to take more than two months to complete, Kirkpatrick said.County officials closed Seven Bridges Road last July to replace the roughly 60-year-old wooden bridge, spanning the Little Silver Creek. County engineers had deemed the structure structurally deficient.The contractor, Lucas Brothers, Inc., Marlboro, is replacing the old wooden span with a bridge with concrete decks and reinforced concrete abutments and is reconstructing the bulkheads, according to the county. The contractor also is erecting a walking bridge across the creek to accommodate pedestrians.For the past six months, motorists have had to use detours with the road’s northbound traffic directed toward Silverside Avenue and then to Branch Avenue. Southbound traffic has been using Rumson Road west to Branch Avenue.Last summer, prior to the project’s start, county workers installed two temporary signal traffic lights on Branch Avenue at the Rumson Road and White Road intersections as a way to better move the increased traffic in the area.The work has been problematic for police and local residents as they attempt to make their way around the closed areas, Police Chief Daniel Shaffrey said.“This has been a long stretch and it’s growing old,” he said.Since Seven Bridges Road has been closed and the aftermath of Sandy, police and motorists have had to deal with Ocean Avenue and the Rumson’s Oceanic Bridge’s closings which has compounded the local traffic situation. That has required additional manpower allocations by the police department. Police had to reroute school buses to Little Silver Point Road School and have also seen increased – and speeding – traffic through residential side streets, Shaffrey said.“Everything has come together and really challenged us as far as logistics and traffic control,” the chief said.“I’m looking forward to the day they reopen it,” he said. “I think the whole town will rejoice when it opens.”“We’re very sensitive to that,” said Kirkpatrick, “and we’re doing what we can.“But this bridge had to be replaced,” she said.last_img read more

2016 Emperor’s Challenge to be featured in international sports tourism study

first_imgTUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. – The 18th Annual Emperor’s Challenge will be taking place once again this weekend in Tumbler Ridge, and will be featured as part of an international sports tourism study.Tor-Arne Gjertsen is a Norwegian research scientist who will not only be competing in this year’s half-marathon south of Tumbler Ridge, but will also be gathering data on the race and its effect on the local economy. The data will be used in a survey being conducted by Dr. Claude Sobry at Lille University in France. Race organiser Jerrilyn Schembri explained that the survey is being undertaken to study the socio-economic impact of sporting events on small communities worldwide, particularly those which have seen a downturn in their local economies. According to Schembri, Gjertsen recently returned from a trip to gather similar data in the southern Siberian town of Khatystyr, Yakutia, which hosts an annual Iditarod-style reindeer race and is known for its reindeer herding. Gjertsen and Sobry’s research will be presented to the Sports Tourism Conference in Grenoble, France in January of 2017.The 20-kilometre footrace will see over 1,000 participants running and hiking along the scenic route that traverses two mountains south of Tumbler Ridge near the idled Peace River Coal mine. Schembri says that roughly 35 percent of racers in this year’s Challenge are from the Fort St. John area, close to the 38 percent from last year. Kris Swanson, who won last year’s race by nearly three minutes ahead of the next place contestant despite racing with a broken collarbone and severe road rash is set to compete once again this year, despite suffering a broken foot earlier this year. The race begins at the Core Lodge, approximately 35 kilometres south of Tumbler Ridge on Saturday at 9:00 a.m.- Advertisement –last_img read more

‘If ever there’s a Premier League club it’s Leeds United’ – Redknapp

first_imgQPR boss Harry Redknapp says his team can expect a tough challenge against Leeds United at Loftus Road on Saturday.Rangers need to get their bid for automatic promotion back on track following three consecutive defeats, while Brian McDermott’s side are still in the running for a play-off spot.“It will be tough. Leeds are a big club,” said Redknapp.“Leeds are a massive club. When you talk about big football clubs, if ever there’s a Premier League club it’s Leeds United.“They’re one of the [biggest] clubs in English football and have been since the days of Don Revie.“Their crowds are incredible – fantastic support. They’ll fill one end tomorrow and get 28,000-30,000 people every week who are fanatical and love their club.”Rangers’ recent results have seen them fall seven points behind second-placed Burnley, but Redknapp insisted it would not be a disaster if they miss out on the top two.“The play-offs a disaster for QPR? No,” he said.“At the start of the year, I must be honest, I went to Peterborough and we got smashed up and I went down to Exeter and we played absolute rubbish and I thought ‘We’re in a relegation battle with this lot’.“But we’ve been bang there all year. If you have to go up though the play-offs you’d take that all day, but we want to go up automatically and it’s still a big possibility.”Rangers are still without Andy Johnson, who has an ankle problem, while Charlie Austin and Danny Simpson remain sidelined with shoulder and back injuries respectively.Simpson looks likely to return in the next couple of weeks and the club are hopeful that top scorer Austin will play again this season.Niko Kranjcar has been passed fit following a slight hamstring problem.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

‘Tata, you are in our prayers’

first_imgImage source: Nelson Mandela Centre of MemoryBRAND SOUTH AFRICA joined the rest of the country on Monday in welcoming the news of former president Nelson Mandela’s release from hospital, saying it shared the joy of Mandela’s family and wishing him “peace and comfort” at his home in Johannesburg.“On behalf of all South Africans: Tata, you are in our thoughts and prayers,” Brand South Africa said in a statement.“We share the joy of the Mandela family at the discharge of Nelson Mandela after 89 days in hospital. May he find peace and comfort in his home, among his relatives and friends, so that his continuing medical care can proceed with dignity.”Mandela was discharged from hospital in Pretoria on Sunday morning in order to continue receiving treatment for a respiratory illness at home.The Presidency said that the 95-year-old former statesman’s condition “remains critical and is at times unstable”, but that his team of doctors were convinced that he would receive the same level of intensive care at his home that he had been receiving in hospital.Mandela’s home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there. “The health care personnel providing care at his home are the very same who provided care to him in hospital,” the Presidency said. “If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done.”During his stay in hospital, he received constant visits from family, friends and colleagues – and messages of support in the thousands from across the country and all over the world.“We are all grateful for the outstanding care he received in hospital from a large team of medical specialists and nurses, which rescued him from the brink and which allowed for this miracle,” Brand South Africa said.“Even in grave illness, Madiba has continued to provide a model to the nation and to the world with his immense grace and fortitude. We have, all of us, much to learn from him.”Source: SAinfolast_img read more
