The project to refurbish the Y-bridge in Zanesville is hitting some stumbling blocks. First it was mother nature and flooding that slowed down progress. Now, we found out that vandals are causing problems too. Troy Stinson is a foreman for Complete General Contracting. He says a couple of weeks ago a backhoe was taken off the bridge and run onto Linden avenue and slammed into the railroad tressel. That caused about 10-thousand dollars in damage. Stinson says this week some windows were busted out of a backhoe and loader. He added that someone also dumped asphalt into the canal and now the Environmental Protection Agency is investigating. Stinson says crews still hope to have the bridge open for traffic by the first of July.
