Repair work would close bridge

BRADFORD—A vital link between New Hampshire and Vermont will be closed for almost three weeks next year as a bridge over the Connecticut River undergoes extensive repairs.
An official from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation visited towns in both states last week to explain the project and its goals while asking area residents and municipal officials for guidance on the timing of the closure. It now appears that the project could take place late in the construction season.

Thanksgiving on
wheels goes silver

FAIRLEE—This is the 25th Thanksgiving that Georgette and Dan Ludwig have prepared a full holiday dinner with all the trimmings, and then given it away. The event has become a tradition for their family and friends, too.
The Ludwig family celebrates the annual holiday by cooking dinner for locals who are elderly or maybe a little down on their luck. Some people may not have the means to cook a big meal for whatever reason.
For the first few years, the whole meal was cooked and a sit-down dinner was held for seniors at the Third Rail restaurant on Main Street.

The bridge between Bradford and Piermont could be closed for nearly three weeks next year as it undergoes repair work to replace an expansion joint and resurfacing.
