Many residents have asked about the condition of the bridge, and why it had to be closed before repairs are made. Attached is a photographic summary of many of the deficiencies, along with the Red Flag Report issued by the NYS Dept. of Transportation. For the bridge to remain open, the Town is required to provide a report to the DOT, conducted by a licensed NYS Engineer. The Town contracted an engineer to do an inspection and prepare a report at the end of October 2018. The engineers report stated…“that the Town close the bridge until a reconstruction or rehabilitation is designed and implemented.” This report is also attached.
Recently, options have been discussed with different contractors and engineers for temporary repairs, so that the bridge can be re-opened as soon as possible. Once the town has an idea of potential costs, the Town Board will be able to choose a option and provide funding as necessary.
