Gov. Harry Hughes and state highway officials yesterday announced that design work for the bridge already has begun. Construction is scheduled to begin in with completion expected in two Hughes said. The new bridge will be constructed north of the current drawbridge. The existing bridge will remain part of an access road system that will allow island residents and local traffic to move across Route 50 without fighting the summer traffic headed for and from Atlantic Coast beaches.

District Court Judge Robert N. Lucke Sr also suspended a 15-month prison sentence for Ricks and placed him on probation for 36 months with arrangements to repay the victim in medical expenses not covered by insurance But the watching the proceedings from a wheelchair in the Glen Burme court- said the sentence was not tough enough. think he should have gotten jail Hart said his speech slightly slurred.

Prior to the recent fund county officials and residents had stressed the need for a prompt solution to the highway problem caused mostly by the existing draw span. County officials had continued to pressure the State Highway Administration while being told the bridge would eventually be built but not until construction funds were available. Hughes said the money for the bridge comes from legislation the General Assem- bly's passed requiring the state to pay back the Transportation Trust Fund million that had been transferred to the General Fund in 1984. The legislation also requires million be returned to the transportation fund from money borrowed this year to help pay for the savings and loan crisis. Hughes credited Del.
