THRUWAY AUTHORITY ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF $4.9 MILLION REPLACEMENT OF EXIT 37 (ELECTRONICS PKWY) BRIDGE IN ONONDAGA COUNTY
Safety Features Include Replacement of Bridge Carrying Exit 37 Traffic Over the Thruway (I-90) in Liverpool Which Serves Approximately 6,800 Vehicles Per Day
Project Completed On-time and On Budget
The New York State Thruway Authority today announced the on-time completion of the exit 37 (Electronics Parkway) bridge replacement in Liverpool, Onondaga County. The $4.9 million project featured the replacement of the bridge carrying exit 37 traffic over the Thruway (I-90) which serves approximately 6,800 vehicles per day.
“With more than 800 bridges located along the NYS Thruway system across the state, reinvesting toll dollars wisely to keep our bridges safe is the utmost importance,” Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew J. Driscoll said. “The new exit 37 ramp bridge will provide the thousands of travelers a safe and reliable gateway to the Liverpool community and a link to a myriad of local attractions, including Onondaga Lake Park.”
The bridge was constructed using 432,000 pounds of American-made structural steel and its new driving surface and approaches utilized 875 cubic yards of concrete, as well as 3,000 tons of asphalt. To further strengthen safety, wider travel lanes and shoulders, and new safety guiderails were installed
Since 2016, the Thruway Authority's capital program has supported the replacement or rehabilitation of 133 bridges across its 570-mile system.
