Brockport-Main Street Lift Bridge Scheduled for Three-Week Closure

Bridge Repairs to Begin Tuesday May 29, 2012

BROCKPORT, NY (05/25/2012)(readMedia)-- The Brockport-Main Street Lift Bridge will be closed to all vehicular traffic from Tuesday May 29, to Friday June 15, the New York State Canal Corporation announced today.

The bridge repair project is in conjunction with New York State Department of Transportation: The Canal Corporation is scheduled to make needed repairs and maintenance to the Brockport-Main Street Bridge lifting system, and DOT is scheduled to make repairs to the grating on the bridge deck.

The pedestrian walkways will remain open during these repairs, except for a brief time after the bridge is first placed in the raised position. The pedestrian walkways will not be handicap accessible at anytime during the scheduled work period.

During the Brockport-Main Street project, a signed detour for vehicles will be posted to direct traffic to Fourth Section Road (Route 31), Sweden Walker Road (Route 260), and Ridge Road (Route 104).

Motorists using the detour routes are encouraged to allow extra time for travel.

This work will not impact navigation on the Canal System or use of the Canalway Trail.

The Canal Corporation and DOT appreciate residents' patience and understanding as these essential improvement projects take place.
