Clothier is first civilian to cross new bridge
When construction started on the new Hastings bridge a few years ago, workers kept seeing a familiar face appear. He was hard to miss -- on his little scooter, Bill Clothier stood out from the crowd. He'd show up every day (weather permitting), ask questions, poke around and make jokes.
Over the years, members of the crew gave Clothier his own construction vest. Then they outfitted that little scooter of his with a bright orange flag so they could always see where he was.
