WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI) - Westerly is scrapping its plans to repair the West Street Bridge.
After spending about $896,000 in 3 1/2 years, the town has decided to demolish the overpass instead of pursuing its rehabilitation.
In March, the Department of Transportation said it would cost at least another $3 million to fix the problems discovered during construction, and those repairs would only hold for another 2-5 years.
