On Veterans Day, Haverstraw town in conjunction with the North Rockland school district will be dedicating the bridge on American Legion Way in Thiells to all the men and women who have served the country.
The dedication ceremony will take place following the Veterans Day service at Calico Hill in West Haverstraw, which will start at 11 a.m. Haverstraw town Supervisor Howard Phillips said the bridge dedication would start at about noon.
The old bridge was condemned in fall 2005 because of structural problems, leaving the North Rockland school district’s Fieldstone Secondary School and Willow Grove Middle School without an emergency route in or out of the facilities.
The bridge is also the primary access for the Hudson Valley Developmental Disabilities Service Office, an agency under the state Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, and the new American Legion Leo Laders Post 130.
The bridge has been open since August.
Call Haverstraw Town Hall at 845-429-2200 for more information about the bridge dedication.
