Crews begin repairs on parking garage at Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services in Bridgeport
Workers have finally begun repairing the parking garage at the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services on Central Avenue in Bridgeport.
Employees were complaining about falling debris and other problems resulting from the deteriorating structure.
Now they say, the News 12 investigative report exposing the problem helped to get those repairs underway.
"News 12 was a fundamental mover and shaker in us getting the funds released from Hartford, and actually getting the contract signed and the work started. So, for that I will always be grateful for you and your station,” said Mike Doyle, employee at Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Doyle said repairs are expected to take two years to complete, and he's grateful to the state for committing the resources necessary to get the job done.
