Comments:
Removed and put in storage in Oct. 2002. It is presently at the St. Onge Construction storage yard in Montgomery. At the 2014 Town Meeting, the Selectboard received approval to dispose of the remains of the Hectorville Bridge. A committee has been formed to evaluate the condition of the timbers and if appropriate recommend a location and use for the bridge.
