“Last week I [Mayor Gail Coniglio] had a long conversation, a telephone conference with our own Leo Vecellio, who, for a living builds bridges and roads, and Llywd Ecclestone and (Town Manager) Peter Elwell, with the Florida Department of Transportation Secretary (Ananth Prasad), who continues to reassure us that all systems are go to maintain that bridge while construction is occurring,” Coniglio said. “I met with Gov.
