MassDOT anticipates that crews from White-SkanskaConsigli Joint-Venture (WSC) will complete the $255 million Longfellow Bridge rehabilitation between Cambridge and Boston in June 2018. The project will restore the historic bridge, built in 1908, including rebuilding its iconic “salt and pepper” towers. The bridge is a crucial link between the two cities and is an important regional connection. The project began in March 2013 and is being funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Federal Highway Administration. The bridge is 2,135 ft. (650.7 m) long and has a deck width of 105 ft. (32 m). The existing structure has two vehicle lanes in each direction, and accommodates 28,000 cars and trucks daily, as well as cyclists and pedestrians. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Red Line also uses the bridge. see lONgFEllOW page 16

Sales Auction Company Holds Its Largest-Ever Auction
he rain wouldn’t let up, but neither did hundreds of bids.
Not the grayest of skies, nor the muddiest of fields, could dampen the pitch at The Sales Auction Company massive public equipment auction that took place all day on, Oct. 1 at its headquarters at 55 King Spring Road, in Windsor Locks, Conn. Nearly 1,100 consignment lots and individual machines, cranes, dump trucks, rollers, earth movers, dozers, classic vehicles, engines, even a lifesized bronze horse, went out for bid over nearly 12 hours at Sales 7th Annual Fall Sale. Sometimes you couldn’t see the jumbo jets flying out of Bradley International Airport, just across the street, because of the many cranes and excavators lined up against the sky. Due to the abundant growth of inventory over the week preceding the auction, the sale was by far the largest ever to date for Northern Connecticut’s largest industrial auction company. In fact, Sales decided to begin the day at 7:30 a.m., with two simultaneous auctions for the entire morning, and not at
8 a.m. as originally advertised, in order to efficiently get to the dozens of rows of impressive heavy iron over the course of the afternoon. The event featured surplus equipment from Strictly Business Crane Service LLC, Southington, Conn.; G&S Industrial Inc., Hatfield, Mass.; Russo Lawn & Landscape, Windsor Locks, Conn.; Metropolitan District Commission, Hartford, Conn.; and Sunbelt Rentals and other lots from surrounding area dealers, contractors, municipalities and rental outfits. Beyond the rows of excavators, earth movers, pavers or grounds keeping and farm machinery from top companies like Caterpillar, John Deere, Bobcat, Kubota, Volvo, Peterbilt, Vermeer and too many others to list, the 1,100 lots included unusual items like a fence installing machine, lathes, heaters, chop saws, muscle cars, tool boxes, compressors, hoists, curb builders, chainsaws, augers, oil tanks — and that was just the first 30 items. Owner Sam Sales and Sales Manager John Stevenson were on their feet all day, in front or behind auctioneer brothers Rick and Bobby Munter,

The W.I. Clark company wanted to show its appreciation by giving back to its loyal customers and community.
