PUTNAM — Dust off the snow and the newly refurbished Henry Breault pedestrian bridge off Kennedy Drive was ready for its close-up.  Dec. 22 town officials and officials from Downes Construction Company LLC cut the ribbon on the bridge.  Downes gave Putnam $9,000 to replank the bridge. Gagnon Construction of Putnam did the work.   Downes is building the town’s new Municipal Complex (set to open in the late summer/early fall 2021).  Diana Colcord, vice president of business development for Downes, said that in conversations with Mayor Barney Seney, the mayor had mentioned that the refurbishment of the pedestrian bridge was something the town needed. Downes donated the funds, she said, and in addition to helping the town it helped a local business, Gagnon.
