Investigation into accident at Bow Public Safety complex could take months
BOW — The investigation into what caused roof trusses at the Bow Public Safety complex construction site to fall on two workers may take up to six months to complete.
The investigation conducted by Occupational Safety and Health Administration is still ongoing, OSHA spokesman Jim Lally told the Concord Monitor.
Bow Select Board Chairman Harry Judd told the Monitor that he hopes OSHA will have finished inspecting the trusses by today so that the debris can be removed and full construction can continue.
The truss collapsed at the Knox Road facility at about 9:30 a.m. Monday injuring two construction workers.
The workers were transported to Concord Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and released from the hospital as of Tuesday, Judd said.
Construction on other parts of the building has not been delayed by the incident, Judd said.
The $4.3 million project to house the fire and police departments began this past summer and is expected to be completed by early 2017.
