We just received information that the Main Street bridge closure will be delayed due to important repairs that need to be done to the Park Street bridge. See the full notification below:
Today the New York State Canal Corporation and the New York State Department of Transportation announced that the Park Avenue Lift Bridge over the Erie Canal in the Village of Brockport, Monroe County, will close to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Monday, March 27, 2023, to facilitate repairs to the bridge’s lifting mechanism. A routine seasonal maintenance inspection of the Park Avenue bridge turned up 2 damaged anchor cables (that connect to the counterweights). The work is expected to take approximately six weeks and the bridge will be in the raised position during that period.
Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use the nearby the State Route 19 (Main Street) Lift Bridge throughout the duration of the repair. To minimize traffic impacts, NYSDOT has postponed the start of a full rehabilitation of the State Route 19 Lift Bridge from April until mid-May.
The Canal Corporation and the Department of Transportation appreciate the public’s patience while these projects are completed. The village will provide updates as the work progresses and post them on the Brockport webpage and the Village Facebook page and send out messages on the My Brockport Village App as appropriate.
When we hear more information, it will be posted here. You can also stay up to date through the Bridging Brockport page on the village website.
