On Champlain Bridge Replacement, Mohawks Continue Long Tradition as Iron Workers

CBC News reports, “[C]ontinuing a tradition that stretches back generations, a small but growing number of the iron workers involved in the [$4.25-billion Champlain Bridge replacement] project are Mohawks from the nearby community of Kahnawake. . . .” Joey Barnes, one of the Mohawks currently working on the bridge, tells the CBC “he’s doing the same thing people from his community, including close relatives, have been doing for generations, and he’s helping to keep what he calls ‘a community tradition’ going.”
