Spencerport bridge repairs begin November 7

By on November 5, 2018

The lift bridge carrying Route 259 (Union Street) over the Erie Canal in the village of Spencerport will temporarily close Wednesday, November 7 through Friday, November 9 for repairs.

New York State Department of Transportation bridge maintenance crews will be performing repairs to the deck system to strengthen the bridge ahead of the winter months. During the repairs, a detour will be in place for motorists to use Route 31, Manitou Road and Route 104 (West Ridge Road).

Following the Union Street closure, the nearby Martha Street Bridge over the Erie Canal in Spencerport will close throughout the winter for repairs and will re-open early next Spring.

The work being done on both bridges is to prepare for and ensure the success of NYSDOT’s upcoming Lift Bridge Rehabilitation Project, which will see the Route 259 lift bridge close next July for approximately 13 months. Significant rehabilitation work to take place will extend the service life of the bridge for the next 40 to 50 years.
