MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. ? The Daily Voice will head into the new year by counting down, in no particular order, the Top 10 headlines from 2012 .
The Fulton Avenue Bridge made headlines when it had to be closed twice in 2012. The bridge was closed in June, and after $131,000 in repairs, reopened at the end of July.
The bridge that connects Mount Vernon and Pelham over the Hutchinson River then had to be closed again in early September. The bridge finally reopened in December after more repairs.
"I know this bridge was important to residents and business alike in the area," County Executive Robert Astorino said in a news release.
The approximately $4 million renovation project removed and replaced the concrete deck of the bridge, as well as the sidewalks.
