The Legislature, without dissent (Legislator Mike Sigler was excused), awarded McPherson Builders, Inc., of Ithaca, the construction contract for preservation of the historic Newfield Covered Bridge .  McPherson’s bid was $218,602.80.  The Newfield Covered Bridge, built in 1853, is owned and Maintained by Tompkins County and the Town of Newfield.  The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The project will repair and replace various bridge features—including such elements as replacement of abutments, installation of timber curbs, and installation of a fire protection system.  The Legislature also authorized the County to execute a construction funding agreement with the State Department of Transportation governing the covered bridge preservation project.
