Park Avenue Lift Bridge Temporarily Closed

Bridge Repairs Begin Monday, May 7, 2012

BROCKPORT, NY (05/01/2012)(readMedia)-- The Park Avenue Lift Bridge will be closed to all vehicular traffic from Monday May 7, 2012, through Friday, May 25, 2012, the New York State Canal Corporation announced. Detour routes will be posted.

The repair and maintenance project is undertaken in conjunction with New York State Department of Transportation. While the Canal Corporation repairs the Park Avenue Bridge lifting system, DOT will repair to the south bridge joint and the deck grating.

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.

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

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

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