State To Spend $5.9M To Fix Jefferson County Bridges
A $5.9 million project will rehabilitate four Jefferson County bridges.
The projects were announced Thursday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The total cost is $5.9 million.
A news release from the governor's office outlines the projects:
- State Route 971V bridge carrying the access road from Route 3 to Fort Drum over the Black River in the town of LeRay.
The bridge is closed during construction and traffic is detoured along state routes 3 and 342. Work on the $2.1 million project is expected to be completed by fall.
- State Route 177 over the North Branch of Sandy Creek in the Town of Rodman.
The bridge will remain in service during construction utilizing a temporary traffic signal. Work on this $2.3 million project is expected to be completed by late fall.
- State Route 193 bridges over I-81 northbound and southbound in the town of Ellisburg.
The bridges will be closed during construction and the detour will utilize adjacent interstate exits. Work on the $1.5 million project is expected to be completed by late fall.
The Kubricky Construction Corp. of Wilton, N.Y., will perform the work, which is slated to begin Monday.
Drivers can get travel information by calling 511 or at the state DOT website.
The site and a mobile phone app offer a trip planner, camera views, and weather alerts and forecasts to help navigate through and around the work.
The projects are part of $44.5 million being spent on 15 bridge projects statewide.
