West Windsor resident Steve Bodley has been working since September to restore the Bowers Covered Bridge. During Tropical Storm Irene, the bridge was lifted off its concrete and floated downstream to the Bibel’s yard on Harrington Road where it remained through September. Bodley and crew salvaged most of the bridge and moved it back upstream to Bible Hill Road. Bodley spent most of the winter hand cutting the pieces to restore the bridge back to its glory; that process began on Monday.
