Why have the names of the bridges been changed?

The bridges were named in honor of 2 individuals who were ver supportive and important to Westport. The Town should continue to name them the Ruth Steinkraus and William Cribari bridges.

...“formally,”  not “formerly,” folks.  (There has been no change.  The article merely refers to the bridges both by their formal and their colloquial names.)

Heidi McGee,

The article specifically states “formerly the William Cribari Bridge”, and “formerly the Ruth Steinkraus Bridge”.  What does that intimate?

The article states “formally,” not “formerly.”
