The huge beautiful stones that make up the very top of this historic bridge have been shifting, and officials are about to try something new.

The stones have been shifting for quite some time on the Duck Brook Bridge which was built back in 1929, and on Tuesday, September 26th, between 6 and 8am, and heavy equipment will be brought in to complete an experimental treatment.

Some of the 1500 lbs. stones on the southwest side of the bridge will be reset using a crane, preventing vehicle, bike and foot traffic from safely being in the area.

According to a press release, "Access to the Witch Hole Pond area carriage roads will still be available from Hulls Cove Visitor Center and the Eagle Lake parking lots. The closure is from carriage road intersection #5 to Duck Brook Road, roughly 200 feet in length."

The Bridge will be closed again in a few weeks to reset even more of the stones.
