NORWICH – After months of debate and weeks of construction, property on Lower Ravine Road in the Town of Norwich again was compromised by last week’s flash flooding.
In June, three culvert pipes in the creek near Lex and Jamey Supensky’s home were damaged and caused the bridge to fail. The bridge serves as a driveway to the couple’s home. The Supensky’s home had minimal damage, although the nearby road and any access onto their property was destroyed.
After working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency for months, it was decided at October’s town board meeting to replace the bridge exactly how it stood before the flooding in June. The culverts were ordered and construction began weeks later.
