NORWICH – Roadwork this week along state Rt. 12 near the county Rt. 32B bridge building project further frustrated motorists already inconvenienced by traveling nearly 10 miles out of the way to cross the Chenango River.
Resident Cory Vincent, who lives nearby both the road and bridge construction projects, said they have been “a major inconvenience ... to do day-to-day things” in the municipalities of Norwich and Oxford.
The former Halfway House Bridge, located in the Town of Norwich near the Oxford town line, was regularly used by thousands of motorists daily to cross the river to destinations east and west and to access an alternate north/south road to the heavily traveled Rt. 12.
