NEWPORT - Almost two weeks after a barge sank beneath the Newport Pell Bridge, how it will be recovered hasnât been determined yet.
Abhe & Svoboda, Inc. of Minnesota, the owner of the barge, was hired by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (RITBA) for the purpose of repainting and making repairs to the steel structure of the bridge.
Repairs began in September 2010 and the current work is scheduled to be completed by yearâs end.
