GUILFORD, Vt. (AP) - Guilford officials say they hope to learn in the spring if they will be able to receive a $175,000 state grant to help rehabilitate the Vermont community’s historic Green River Covered Bridge.

Guilford officials are hopeful they’ll get the grant that will help pay for a project to restore the bridge’s 8-ton weight limit.

But given the uncertainty of the situation and that repairs are due to begin this year, they’re also considering asking voters for a bond issue to fund the project.

Some repairs have been made. The Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/1I5EFsc ) reports additional repairs are needed to restore the bridge to its 8-ton weight limit.

The project carries a $550,000 price tag. The state has committed $315,000 to the project.
