The Department of Transportation project manager says some of the initial work to take the bridge apart is already underway, such as cutting the steel. The $5.3 million plan is expected to wrap up in June or July. The Waldo-Hancock Bridge was built in 1931 and was replaced by the Penobscot Narrows Bridge in 2006.
