The New York State Department of Transportation is hosting a public information meeting on Thursday, March 17, to discuss a project to replace the Route 28 Bridge over the Hudson River in the hamlet of The Glen between Warrensburg and Wevertown in Warren County.
The bridge was built in 1959 and carries approximately 3,375 motor vehicles per day.
The project is scheduled to begin this spring and continue through July 2017. Construction is expected to be done in phases and traffic maintained using alternating one-lane traffic controlled by a traffic signal. Starting in May 2016, NYSDOT will construct the southbound half of the new bridge, first removing that half of the existing structure. The Department will then construct the northbound half of the new bridge.
The work is part of a multiple-bridge replacement contract with Kubricky Construction Corp. of Wilton for $20.7 million.
The meeting will begin at 7 pm at the Warrensburg Town Hall at 3797 Main Street, Warrensburg, 12885.
