DOT Orders Halt to Moses Wheeler Work

Work has stopped on the Moses Wheeler Bridge in light of four incidents, including the toppling of a crane Saturday morning, state officials said Tuesday morning.

“There have been some things that raised our eyebrows, but this was the last straw,” DOT spokesman Kevin Nursick said. He said he expects that the work will be able to resume in a few days, “but it will take as long as it takes until we’re satisfied.”
