THRUWAY AUTHORITY ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF 16 BRIDGE REHABILITATION PROJECT
IN HERKIMER, ONEIDA, ONONDAGA, AND ONTARIO COUNTIES
$4.5M Project Improved Lifespan of 16 Bridges Along the Thruway (I-90) Between Exits 29 and 43
Project Completed On Time and Under Budget
The New York State Thruway Authority today announced the rehabilitation of 16 bridges in Herkimer, Oneida, Onondaga, and Ontario Counties is now complete.
Work on the overall $4.5 million project included joint replacements, partial depth repairs on substructures and infilling of piers. The 16 bridges carry or pass over a 124 mile stretch of I-90 between exit 29 (Canajoharie – Sharon Springs – NY Route 10) and exit 43 (Manchester - Palmyra- NY Route 21).
“These improvements help maintain a safe and reliable roadway for the thousands of motorists that travel this section of the Thruway each day,” said Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew J. Driscoll. “The enhancements on this stretch are part of many strategic improvements the Thruway Authority is making system-wide to ensure toll dollars are reinvested into building viable infrastructure well into the future.”
The project was completed by Harrison and Burrowes Bridge Constructors, Inc. from Glenmont, NY.
Since 2014 the Thruway Authority has invested $249 million in infrastructure projects in Central New York. For an in-depth look at the individual bridges worked on and the rehabilitation work, click here.
The project was completed on time and under budget.
