MJ Engineering and representatives of the New York State Department of Transportation met with the Board to discuss the specifics of the Route 20 Bridge replacement project.
After assessing the state of the current bridge, it's been judged to not be performing to standards. Sidewalks are going to be installed on both sides of the road, crosswalk and signage will be updated, and landscaping and architectural upgrades are also under discussion.
There is an expected four to six week detour route using the previous detour route. There won't be any work done on North Street while another detour is in effect.
