WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Construction is moving along on two bridges in the city of Watertown.

Traffic is steady on both the Pearl Street and Mill Street bridges, which are getting rehabbed.

The Mill Street bridge has been repainted, and concrete repairs are continuing on Pearl Street.

The cost of construction for both bridges was mostly covered by a $1.8 million state grant, according to City Engineer Justin Wood.

“It’ll be nice for the city. We have seven bridges in our inventory and to get two of these fully rehabbed is fantastic. Next year we’re going to be rehabbing the Court Street bridge,” Wood said.

Construction on both bridges should be completed by Fall.
