State Department of Transportation (DOT) workers last week took subsurface core samples at Sugar Street (Route 302), at its intersection with Elm Drive, for geological information on the soil there to be used in the design of a new, wider Sugar Street bridge.
The new span will replace the existing Sugar Street bridge which becomes a traffic bottleneck during commuter rush periods.
