Stem Brothers, Inc. Ready for Bridge Closing Milford - Upper Black Eddy Bridge Closure Implemented
MILFORD, N.J. - Stem Brothers, Inc., a family owned & operated full-service home energy company since 1946, announced today that it has taken necessary steps to preserve exceptional service to its Pennsylvania commercial and residential customers during the closing for repairs of the Milford - Upper Black Eddy bridge.
J.D. Stem, company spokesman, says "with the bridge closing for rehabilitation during peak heating months we have made contingency plans to maintain our usual high level of customer service on both sides of the Delaware River. During the closing we will maintain our normal schedules and terms of service but remind 'will-call' customers to pay close attention to product levels in their tanks being mindful our trucks will have to travel further to reach them."
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission has scheduled work on the historic Milford-Upper Black Eddy span to last through May 17, 2011. The closing marks the first comprehensive rehabilitation of the span and the first extended period of being closed to traffic since August 19-22, 1955 during and following the benchmark flood of 1955.
The timing of the closure has been scheduled to fall after the holidays and be completed before summer tourism begins.
