Thankfully, the project to replace the Metropolitan Avenue bridge deck is almost done.
Last week, Community Board 5’s Transportation Committee announced that the long-delayed work is “rapidly approaching completion.”
The new contractor, Beaver Concrete Construction Company, had been working diligently through Saturdays in hopes of getting it done by Thanksgiving.
Beaver Construction replaced the incompetent Mugrose Construction, which defaulted on its contract with the city last year.
That led to a severe delay in the project, extending the congestion and traffic along Metropolitan Avenue.
