The New Trestle




There may not have been a ribbon at the MTA/LIRR ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday morning, November 15, at the new North Main Street trestle, but the same feeling of accomplishment was in the air. Representatives from the MTA/LIRR, East Hampton Village Hall, East Hampton Village Fire Department, MTA Police, and politicians joined a group with the Bridge Replacegment Project, to celebrate its completion. Vanessa Lockel from the MTA/LIRR Government and Community Affairs Department moderated, and introduced the four speakers: Chris Calvagna, svp/LIRR Engineering; Anthony Simon, Sheet Metal Air Rail Transportation General Chairman; Assemblyman Fred Thiele; and East Hampton Village Mayor Paul Rickenbach.
